I want to challenge you NZ Printmakers to submit work to this!
Print Council of Australia (PCA) is inviting artists to submit digital images of current work
that they would like to have considered as an edition for the PCA 2012 Print Commission.
Although PCA have been sent submissions from around the world,
I heard that NOONE from New Zealand has ever submitted prints!!!
I think NZ has lots of fabulous printmakers,
so we should be well represented in this collection,
so please forward this on to as many NZ printmakers as you can!

You don't need to be a member of PCA to submit work for this Commission,
and all forms of printmaking (including digital) are welcome.

Just in case you want to know how it works:
An independent arts professional judges each artist’s portfolio of work
and selects a final print to be commissioned from each.
Each artist receives a supply of 50 sheets of BFK Rives (white)
quality printing paper for editioning, provided by the sponsor, Canson Australia.
Selected artists each produce six artists’ proofs
and an edition of between 30 and 40 prints for distribution to subscribers.
PCA also pays an Artist’s Fee of $700 to assist with studio costs!
The PCA aims to offer major promotional and professional opportunities for artists.
The 10 selected works are featured in Imprint Magazine and on their website,
and many PCA commissioned prints are purchased
by public galleries and institutions as well as many private collectors.
