ON PAPER International Printmaking Contest 2023

ON PAPER contest is an annual international printmaking project to promote the art of printmaking and develop connections between printmakers around the world.

Each artist can submit one piece of work on a paper size of 30cm x 40cm. The print size can be any within the size of the paper.

The work must have been made using any traditional printmaking techniques, including screenprinting, lithography, etching, engraving, collagraph, monotype, block printing, woodcut, electro-etching, photo etching, photopolymer, etc. Entrants are also encouraged to use non-toxic techniques.

Digital prints (prints made with a printer) are not accepted. However, digital processes can be used to elaborate prints that are traditionally printed.

The work must be relatively new, completed in the last couple of years and not have received a prize before.

Entry fee is 26 EUR.


Open to anyone worldwide.


The winner will receive a prize of 1000 EUR. The winner will also be announced at the opening event and via our social media channels.
