2012 Theme
Print has long been associated with the dissemination of information. From Buddhist scrolls to the Gutenberg press to political posters, those with ideas to transmit or propaganda to spread have often turned to the print as an inexpensive & fast solution for the promulgation of words & images. This continues to be true, with artists, activists & advertisers all using print to communicate to the public.

Artists are asked to consider the theme of "Proclamation and Propaganda" when producing work for the 2012 portfolio.

Prints can be shipped to:
