• All British and international artists are eligible to enter.
  • All contemporary print processes including 2D, 3D, video, installation and site-specific work are eligible.
  • The work selected for exhibition must be available from September to end December 2016.
  • Artists may submit up to 10 images or documentation of their recent work, a series or sequence of works where the work encounters print.


The delivery of the work to and from the exhibition is the responsibility of the artist. Framing or mounting of works, if required for exhibition, is also the responsibility of the artist and must be carried out prior to delivery.  However, where possible we will support artists with both the delivery/return and framing of artworks from overseas. Works not requiring framing or mounting must be suitably protected to avoid damage in transit and clear indication should be given as to how the work could be presented. For works that require particular installation, the organisers will consider contribution to the artist’s travel costs on an individual basis.


Works selected for exhibition will be insured by the venues. However, artists are advised to insure their works in transit to and from the exhibition venues including transit from London to Newcastle, if appropriate.


Works selected for exhibition may be for sale. A 40% plus VAT commission will be levied on all works sold during the exhibitions or directly as a result of the International Print Biennale both at the exhibitions and on the website. Artists must make sure that the sale prices they give include the commission and VAT.


During each of the exhibitions the artists will be contacted by the organisers to make arrangements for the collection or return of their work if unsold.

The artist will allow the work to be photographed and reproduced by the International Print Biennale for the purposes of promoting the project including catalogue, press and publicity, websites and the IPB e-commerce site (if work is for sale) in all territories. Copyright of all works remains the property of the artist. Any enquiries for copyright will be referred to the artist.
