Compete International Postcard Show 2022
International Deadline: January 7, 2022 – Surface invites artists from across the world to participate in our annual International Postcard Show.
All submissions will be included in this vibrant and hugely popular exhibition. The International Postcard Show will feature hundreds of original creations in an array of different media by established and aspiring artists from all over the world.
Artists can choose to have their work on sale during the exhibition; postcards will be priced at £15 each. If postcards remain unsold, all participants have the opportunity to exchange their postcard with another artist, who will be randomly selected at the end of the exhibition.
In the case of no sale or if you opt out of selling your work(s) and do not wish to take part in the international exchange, your postcards will be returned to you via post following the exhibition.
Exhibition: 15th January – 12th February 2022.
We will be awarding prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place postcards, selected by the exhibition coordinators. There will also be our annual People’s Prize, where visitors to the exhibition will have a chance to vote for their favourite postcard. The creator of the selected postcard will win a free exhibition in Le Loovre.
- 1st Prize: £50
- 2nd Prize: A Year’s subscription to Aesthetica Magazine
- 3rd Prize: £25 Etsy gift card
- People’s Prize: Free Exhibition in Le Loovre
Entries are limited to 5 per person, starting at £6.
All works received with a completed application form before the deadline will be accepted and exhibited as part of the show. Artworks in any medium are welcome, but must fit the postcard-sized specifications of 4×6 inches (10.5x15cm) with a maximum depth of 5mm.
