The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers runs two open submission exhibitions each year that are open to those who are not members of the society. They are encouraged to join in and submit work online.
THE NATIONAL ORIGINAL PRINT EXHIBITION
Open for online submissions from March - June.
Works are selected by a panel which changes each year. The exhibition of successful entries is held at Bankside Gallery the following September. Prizes and awards are presented at the opening evening. The National Original Print Exhibition competition was created to showcase the best in contemporary printmaking in any printmaking technique.
Open for online submissions from June - September.
The Masters is a technique specific exhibition. Both the printmaking technique in focus and the curator changes each year. A prominent member of the RE, recognised as a master of their craft, curates each year’s exhibition. The exhibition of successful entries is held at Bankside Gallery the following November, and prizes and awards are presented at the opening evening of the exhibition.
