The Print Centers 89th Annual Contest

The Print Centers 89th Annual Contest The Print Centers 89th Annual Contest is one of the most prestigious and oldest competitions in the United States. The Print Center is particularly interested in highlighting local, national and international artists who utilize photography and printmaking in intriguing ways, both in content and process. 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.

All artists using photography and/or printmaking as critical components in their works can enter. Work submitted must have been completed in the last three years. Submitted works cannot have been exhibited within 50 miles of Philadelphia or in any prior exhibition at The Print Center. Up to five images may be submitted and only one submission per person is allowed.

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.

Your entry fee to the competition also includes a one-year Artist Level Membership to The Print Center.
