The Colin Holden Print Commission is a new opportunity for tertiary students currently enrolled in visual or fine arts at TAFE or university in Australia to create an original print edition for the Print Council of Australia.

Students enrolled in a college or training organisation offering nationally accredited visual arts qualifications are eligible to apply.

Commissioned students will receive $1000, printmaking paper, and their work will be promoted and launched at the Print Council of Australia Gallery and in IMPRINT magazine.

The Print Council of Australia has invited QG Directors Soula & Theo Mantalvanos to co-judge The Colin Holden Print Commission and to be part of this exciting opportunity for emerging artists.

The PCA has been commissioning contemporary artists to make new works in print media since 1966 through the PCA Print Commission.

This program has showcased some of the most talented, innovative and influential artists working in print, with institutional collections regularly acquiring prints from the annual commission.

The Colin Holden Print Commission has been specially established to encourage emerging artists engaged in tertiary study to develop and promote their printmaking.
