Entry Instructions

If the artist does not have a personal website, please complete the application but leave the URL entry blank; separately, please send 10-15 good quality digital images to with the subject line “Poste Print Festival Submission  [your name]”, where is replaced with your name as entered in the application. The images should be at least 1024 pixels on the longest side; the email must include a list with the information about the submitted images (title, medium, year, and dimensions).

Work submitted must be original artwork. The submitted works must incorporate a printmaking process (relief, intaglio, lithography, screen printing, digital) and they cannot solely be reproductions of other works (e.g. giclée printouts of high-resolution scans of paintings or drawings).


There is no fee for the application. If an artist is selected to participate, there is a $50 fee for the vending table. The fee will contribute directly to the operating fund of the festival.
