Rosendal Gallery hosts the first of an annual printmaking competition to promote this age old art and give recognition to its practitioners and custodians. It is an opportunity for printmakers to express themselves within the bounds of a 10 x 10cm arrangement on paper.

A jury of professional printmakers and curators (to be announced later) will select the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners. The first prize for the best overall print will be R10 000.00. Second prize will be 60 large sheets of Fabriano Rosapina 285g paper of 500 x 700 mm,and third prize will be 40 sheets. The winner will have the opportunity to exhibit 15 works during the November 2019 “10by10”.

The competition is open to all printmakers. All fine-art printmaking mediums including woodcut, linocut, intaglio, lithography, monotype and silkscreen may be used. No photographs, digital media, drawings or direct reproductions are eligible
and works employing these techniques will not be accepted.  Artists can submit up to four different images but must supply two prints of each image. In the case of monotypes, obviously one print of each image is acceptable.  All works must be for sale and will be available for sale  during the exhibition and through the website.  An entry fee of R100 is payable for each image, thus for  one entry (with two prints of each) an artist would pay R100 and for four entries R400. (two prints of each) Prints may not exceed a square of 10 x 10cm and must be printed on paper with a 20 x 20cm dimension. If works are printed on larger sheets, excess paper will be trimmed to the above dimensions required for the exhibition. 

Work must not be mounted or framed. Work must also not be rolled and should be delivered,mailed or couriered flat, between hardboard or stiff mountboard covers. All works bust be signed and numbered by the artist.

The artists must state the selling price of which the Gallery will take a 33.3% commission. Rosendal Gallery reserves the right to reproduce submitted works for promotional purposes. Although all the works will be handled with maximum care the Gallery accept no responsibility for damage or loss. Artists are expected to have their own insurance.
