Printmaking Competition Germany clo 13 Mar 2010


Deadline for the preliminary round is March 13, 2010

Thanks to Chrissie Heughan for posting this information to me for the benifit of FDPW members.........

Graphic Arts Prize of the City of Bietigheim-Bissingen
Inaugurated in 1989, on the occasion of Bietigheim-Bissingen’s 1200th anniversary, the Graphic Arts Competition for the »Linocut Today« prize is now held triennially.
In 2010, when it will take place for the 8th time, the purpose of the competition will also be to support contemporary artists working in linocut and to encourage others to use this technique.
Furthermore, the Municipal Gallery has concentrated its collecting and exhibition activities on the linocut. The commitment to this artistic practice is based on the fact that Bietigheim- Bissingen is home to Armstrong DLW AG, a company which has been producing linoleum for more than 100 years. This company is generously supporting the competition again this time.

The prizes are endowed with € 5,000, € 3,000, and € 2,000. The award-winning works will be purchased by the Municipal Gallery for its collection.   The jury will also decide on three additional purchases from among the competition entries. The preliminary round will be carried out on the basis of reproductions; originals entered without prior request will not be accepted.

For this preliminary round up to three works may be submitted, 

either as colour photos or as computer printouts.

The works must have been created exclusively or mainly in the linocut printing technique and should not be more than two years old.

All the selected works will be presented in an exhibition at the Municipal Gallery.

No entry fee.
