About the Competition
The Print Center’s Annual International Competition is one of the most prestigious and oldest competitions in the United States. Alternating yearly between printmaking and photography, it provides a unique opportunity for local, national and international artists to compete in a forum which emphasizes individual talent and expressiveness. The Print Center is particularly interested in highlighting artists who utilize photography in intriguing ways, both in terms of content of the imagery and process in which it was made. Artists whose work pushes the boundaries of traditional photographic practice are encouraged to enter.
