    Each artist can submit one piece of work on a paper size of 300mm x 400mm. 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

    • Etching
    • Collagraph
    • Monotipe
    • Electro-etching
