Calls & Contests

This page lists current national and international calls for entries and contests for work in printmaking media, listed in order by submission due date.  Please submit information about any calls for work or contests using the form at the bottom of the page.

This list is intended to function as a resource for printmakers; inclusion on this list does not constitute an endorsement by Smidgeon Press, and I make no guarantees about the reliability or viability of any organization, event, or collective included on this list. If you’re an emerging printmaker who is new to submitting, please consider reading DCimPRINT’s handy guide, Printmaking 101: Applying for shows, first.

Consider creating a (free) profile on CaFÉ. Check out the Bay Area Art Grind‘s listings for some opportunities that are less specific to printmakers.
