Artists who use printmaking and/or photography as critical components of their work, or whose work pushes the boundaries of traditional photographic and printmaking practices, are encouraged to enter.
Your entry fee to the competition also includes a one-year Artist Level Membership to The Print Center.

An online exhibition will be mounted on The Print Center’s website with the images submitted by semifinalists, as well as biographical information and links to the artists’ own websites. Ten finalists will have more extensive information on the site, including additional images (Artists will be contacted by The Print Center for additional information and images).
Two artists will be selected from the ten finalists to receive solo exhibitions at The Print Center. Those artists will receive a $200 honorarium (Pending funding, especially for international artists, this amount could increase). Artists are responsible for delivering or shipping their work to and from The Print Center and all related costs, including framing when appropriate. The Print Center will install and de-install work.
