Call For Entries: 11th Annual Postcard Exchange

Iowa State University's Print Club is hosting the 11th Annual Postcard Print Exchange. Each year artists participate with entries from across the United States and as far away as Australia.This past year we received prints from 352 artists from 40 U.S. States and nine other countries.

The theme for this year’s exchange is “Apocalypse” in response to the hubbub about 2012. Feel free to interpret how you like, but a few ideas are Mayan calendar, Revelations, Nuclear Holocaust, Nostradamus, or Zombie Apocalypse.

Requirements: Any printmaking technique may be used (woodcuts, lithography, intaglio, photography, silkscreen, digital printmaking, etc.)

2.     Create 13 duplicate postcards, each must be 4” x 6”
3.     The 13 identical prints should be sent individually to the address posted below.  Each card must be stamped and will bear the markings of travel and the postal service. (Do not send the cards together in one envelope.)
4.     Include the following information on the back of the card:

        a. Your name and return address (legible please)
        b. April Katz' address (details below)
        c. Title
        c. Process(es) used
        d. Your e-mail (optional)
5.     If you can, send (separately) a small donation of $8 ($4 for students) to help pay for postage. Checks payable to The University Print Society

Send postcard prints to:

April Katz
University Print Society

ENTRIES DUE: March 30, 2011

After receiving everyone's postcard prints the University Print Society will divide up the cards and you will be sent 12 new and different prints from other participants. The University Print Society will keep one of the 13 for its collection. Postage for returning the 12 new prints will be paid for by the University Print Society, however your donation will help us out tremendously.
