The exhibition is open to all artists (over the age of 16), based in the United Kingdom, working purely within the medium of printmaking (mixed-media and digital pieces will not be accepted).
All prints submitted must be original, hand-pulled fine art prints, produced using a recognised printmaking technique. If you are unsure that your print(s) meet these requirements, please contact us to confirm before submitting your application form.
At present there is no size limit on work submitted. Please note, however, all work must be 2D based.
The (non-refundable) submission fee is £21 per entrant, which offsets costs incurred for administration, installation and promotional literature for the Derby Print Open.
Applications are accepted incorporating any theme or subject, but works must have been produced after January 2016.
Works submitted must be signed, editioned and dated by the artist.
If accepted, the original print must be framed (at the expense of the artist) and be delivered to the studio, complete with a label on the reverse stating the artist's name, print title and medium. Specific fixture details to fit with our hanging systems will be requested at the time of notification.
All work must be for sale and will be subject to a 30% commission, if sold.
Entrants can submit up to 3 prints. Subject to available space, each entrant will be guaranteed to exhibit at least one of the submitted works provided all other guidelines are adhered to.
Previously exhibited work is acceptable as long as the above requirements are met.
