About this exhibition

Our biennial Print Prize exhibition aims to champion and celebrate the exciting range of contemporary print-makers producing original printed artworks within the UK. Selected artists also have the opportunity to be rewarded for their talents, with a top cash prize of £1,000!

To help reduce some of the common barriers to exhibiting -
such as limited budgets and time to make work - work
exhibited at the RBSA in the last 5 years may be entered
and artists aged 35 and under receive a 50% discount on
entry fees.

The majority of artworks on display will be for sale. Don't miss the free artist demonstrations taking place during the show.


Selection for the Print Prize was by digital image of the original artwork
only. All artworks entered went through the same selection
process. The selection was based on the assessment of the
quality and interest of each work. This year’s exhibition was selected by Mychael Barratt, Past President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, and Leonie Bradley, Editor of Printmaking Today.

The list of selected works is available to download from the top-right corner of this webpage. Please contact the Gallery if you have queries or corrections.

The prizes will be selected by Mychael and Leonie or, where applicable,
the prize donor. All prizes will be awarded at the exhibition
Private View on Thursday 26 July, 6 - 8pm.


Prizes include:
• GMC First Prize - £1,000 cash
