Flourish Award for Excellence in Printmaking 2021-22 - Call out to Artists
Deadline: 14/11/2021 | Published: 23/09/2021 | Region: West Yorkshire | Country: United Kingdom | Fabian Osborne
Selected from open submission, the 12th Flourish Award for Excellence in Printmaking will bring together a diverse range of printmaking by selected artists from across the UK, presented in venues in the north of England in 2022 by West Yorkshire Print Workshop.
The Flourish Award celebrates excellence in printmaking through a curated exhibition of around 12-15 artists shortlisted from open submission. We are looking for creativity, skill, originality and innovation in traditional handmade print: from relief print and intaglio to screenprint, lithography and more.
The winner of the Award goes on to present their own solo print exhibition in Huddersfield. They will also benefit from a 2-week period of access to the facilities at WYPW. In addition, there are runners-up prizes, including our student/recent graduate award.
The competition is open to established, emerging, and student artist/printmakers, with shortlisting and prizes awarded by an independent panel of judges. With the support of the Golsoncott Foundation this year, we have been able to reduce the submission fee to £5. Artists can submit up to 3 works for consideration, and have the chance to be part of an increasingly recognised Award and national exhibiton, which provides a significant development opportunity for the winner as well as exposure for all short listed artists.
The winner of last year's Flourish Award was Lucy May Schofield. The Great Art Award went to Louisa Boyd, and the WYPW student/recent graduate prize was shared by Flora MacLachlan and Lucie McGregor.Flora also won the Hawthorn Printmakers Supplies 'People's Choice' award voted for by visitors to the exhibition.

The first round of judging takes places online. Works will be judged on creativity, originality, use of materials, technical ability and overall impact. It is the selection panel's role to choose a shortlist and the eventual winner of the Flourish Award. The panel's decision is ﬁnal.
