Due to the success of the Flourish Printmakers Award, which was established in 2009 by West Yorkshire Print Workshop to celebrate and promote excellence in printmaking from it’s members, we are expanding the award to now also include non-members’ work across the Yorkshire region. This will allow WYPW to champion and will showcase the best printmaking from practitioners across Yorkshire.
It will provide Yorkshire artists and printmakers the opportunity to exhibit their work at the WYPW Gallery and go on to plan their own solo print exhibition at Huddersfield Art Gallery in 2013 as part of the prizes awarded to the winning printmaker.
During the exhibition our selection panel will choose a winner from the work on display in two categories; the two awards being presented this year are the coveted Flourish Award Yorkshire Printmaker of the Year and the Flourish Award Yorkshire Emerging Printmaker of the Year.
