Graphic Arts Prize "Linocut today"
Friday 04 January 2013 at 23:00
Since inaugurating the Linocut Today prize in 1989, the city of Bietigheim-Bissingen has been awarding it every three years. The aim of the competition is to support contemporary artists working in the linocut technique and to encourage others to use it. The Linocut Today prize is generously supported by Armstrong DLW GmbH Bietigheim-Bissingen.
Linocut Today involves three prizes of € 5000, € 3000 and € 2000 respectively. All the works that are awarded a prize are then acquired for the linocut collection of the Städtische Galerie Bietigheim-Bissingen. Furthermore, the prize-winning works, another three acquisitions by the jury and all the other works selected by the jury are shown in an exhibition at the Städtische Galerie Bietigheim-Bissingen. An exhibition catalogue is also published. The competition is open to all professional artists; there are neither regional nor national restrictions.
Each artist can submit a maximum of three works. In the preliminary round, an internal jury decides, on the basis of photographs or computer print-outs, which artists will be invited to enter original works for the final round of the competition. Only works created exclusively or mainly using the linocut technique can be submitted. The submitted works must had been produced in 2011 or 2012 and should not have been entered for any other competition. All the works must be available for purchase.
