ENTRIES CLOSE AUGUST 6TH!
As part of the 2018 Australian Print Triennial there will be a major exhibition of finalists for the APT Print Award. The Print Award has been designed especially for printmakers in that all aspects of the prize are designed to enhance and support the winner’s printmaking experience. The finalists will be selected by two judges from all of the entries received. All entrants will be notified as to their selection or non-selection.
The major print award is worth over $10,000 and consists of:
- cash of $5000
- a three week residency at The Art Vault
- a three week exhibition in the main gallery space of The Art Vault
- use of the printmaking facilities for three weeks at The Art Vault
- an article on the winning artist in Imprint magazine
- a year’s subscription to Imprint magazine
- a gift voucher for the sum of $100 from Melbourne Etching Supplies
Information for artists entering the Print Award with digital prints
We are not opposed to digital techniques in printmaking and where the digital print is the finished result. Some finalists for the Print Award for the last Australian Print Triennial combined digital and traditional techniques. We do require that the work be created solely as an original print on archival paper and that it is not a copy of a work of art that was originally produced in another medium and then made as a giclee print or reproduction.
