ON PAPER, a project to promote the art of printmaking and develop connections between printmakers around the world, this year presents its 5nd print cmpetition, ON PAPER International Printmaking Award 2019 inviting anyone worldwide to participate.
ON PAPER encourages artists to develop their creativity and uniqueness through the process of printing. Artists may submit unique prints, poupe color prints, monotip processes, chine collé, multiplate prints… in general experimental prints that are unlikely to be part of an edition.
The documents required are:
• Resume or CV (maximum 100 words)
• Information about the print (maximum 100 words)
• Image of the work (JPG max. 1MB)
Each artist can submit 1 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 jury is composed of international artists and professionals of the printmaking world. The jury will choose a shortlist of 10-15 artists including the award winning works. The print with the most creative printing process will be awarded this year for the first time. The artists shortlisted for the prize and the exhibition will be notified by email before 1st May 2019. The winner will be announced and exhibited in the Sala aLfaRa, Oviedo (Asturias, Spain) in July 2019.
The submission fee is 26 Euro or 13 Euro for entries before 1st February 2019.
