The Paper Arts Collective announces its 2021 print contest, open to fine art printers of all levels. The Collective is dedicated to advancing the art of digital photographic printing. Here’s a chance to showcase your fine art printing and have it exhibited in an art gallery outside of Washington, D.C.
Aside from great equipment and cash prizes, winners will have their winning images printed large in the Collective’s professional studio for the exhibition. We will also post an interview with all 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in one of our online publications.
There will be First, Second and Third place cash and prizes, as well as Honorable Mentions. In summary:
  • There are two (2) categories: Color and Black & White.
  • You may submit up to 6 prints, divided as you wish between the two categories.
  • All prints must be on 8.5″ x 11″ or A4 paper.
  • You may print on any fine art paper you choose.
  • Entrants who submit 3 or more prints will receive a link to a free copy of “The Art of the Gallery Show”, a work that walks you through every aspect of landing and managing a successful fine art exhibition.
The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2021.
