How it works

Applications are open to all and there is no assigned theme.

Printmakers are invited to complete a submission form for up to three prints, and (subject to available space) each entrant will be guaranteed to exhibit at least one of the submitted works provided all other guidelines are adhered to.

The (non-refundable) submission fee is £25 per entrant (for up to three prints), which offsets costs incurred for administration, installation and promotional literature for the Derby Print Open.

The exhibition takes place throughout June.
