Castlemaine Art Museum recognises and celebrates contemporary printmaking through its Experimental Print Prize. The biennial, non-acquisitive prize will be presented in 2019, 2021 and 2023 and is open to artists resident in Victoria.

Through the generous support of an anonymous local donor, three generous prizes will be offered: $10,000, $5,000 and $3,000 for an emerging artist.

There is a strong tradition of printmaking in Victoria; this Prize seeks to foster new directions in the field. This prize recognises that experimentation and risk are essential to art.

Entries are invited from artists using innovative approaches to traditional printmaking processes such as intaglio, relief, planographic, digital processes and photography (if included within the printmaking process), will be accepted.

Experimentation may include challenging and redefining concepts of printmaking; crossing traditional boundaries between media; pushing the limits of medium and process; engaging with new tools, techniques and materials; artists’ books and three dimensional work will be accepted. Established through to early career artists are encouraged to apply.

The entry fee is $35,00.
