Now in its 5th year, the annual ON PAPER International Printmaking Award competition is accepting entries for 2019.
The competition has been created to promote the art of printmaking and connect printmakers around the world.
One award of 1000 Euro will be awarded to the the winning artist. There’s also a second prize of 300 Euro. The shortlisted artists will have their work exhibited in the Sala aLfaRa, Oviedo (Asturias, Spain), in July 2019.
Each artist can submit one piece of work on a paper size of 300mm x 400mm (30cm x 40cm) or the equivalent 11x17in. The print size can be any within the size of the paper. The work must have been made using any traditional printmaking techniques, including screenprinting, lithography, etching, collagraph, monotipe, electro-etching, woodcut, photopolymer, etc. Artists are encouraged to use non-toxic techniques. Digital prints (prints made with a printer) are not accepted. However, digital processes can be used to elaborate prints that are traditionally printed.
The work must be relatively new, completed in the last couple of years, not before, and not have received a prize before.
The artists shortlisted for the prize and the exhibition will be notified by email before 1st May 2019. The winner will be announced during the opening night of the show on the 4th of July 2019 in Sala aLfaRa.
