Give and Receive Prints; Build Your Collection; Be Surprised!
International photographers of all backgrounds are invited to submit to The Print Swap, brought to you by Feature Shoot. The Print Swap is an opportunity for photographers to collect carefully curated prints and engage with other photographers around the globe. Photographers who are selected by our curators will both give and receive a print. Once selected, photographers pay $40 per image to participate (we cover printing and shipping).
To submit, simply hashtag your images on Instagram #theprintswap or email them to us (at 620px wide) at email@example.com.
We're inviting everyone who participates in The Print Swap between now and January 31, 2019 to pitch us their dream photography project. We'll consider all your ideas, and we'll give three photographers $500 each to bring their visions to life. Once the projects are completed, they'll be debuted exclusively right here on Feature Shoot and showcased across all our social channels.
We're also thrilled to announce that our tenth exhibition--and second show in Sydney--will be at The Other Art Fair in March 2019. Carly Earl, Picture Editor at The Guardian Australia, will be our guest curator, and only photos submitted now through January 31st will be eligible for consideration for the show.
Presented by Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair Sydney is the preeminent destination for emerging artists and collectors throughout Australia. Now in its fifth year, the 2019 edition will take place at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh. Known around the world as a bridge between up-and-coming artists and established gallerists, The Other Art Fair spans continents with editions throughout the UK, the US, and Australia. This will be the second time The Print Swap has exhibited at The Other Art Fair; earlier this year, 24 images from the project were shown as part of the London fair.
Earl will select a total of 25 photographs from The Print Swap to exhibit at the Australian Technology Park. All photographers who participate in The Print Swap during the judging period will be considered for the exhibition, but inclusion in The Print Swap will not necessarily mean inclusion the final collection.
Exhibiting images will be announced shortly after the deadline.
Hashtag your images #theprintswap on Instagram by January 31, 2019 to be considered for our exhibition at The Other Art Fair in Sydney (March 2019).
What photographers are saying:
“Just received three beautiful prints in my mail via @theprintswap project. This unique project selects images hashtagged, and randomly ships winning images to other photographer/winners. So far I have had 3 images selected and have a few more coming. I would like to encourage all of you to follow and submit images to The Print Swap project. It is an awesome way to discover talent and be pleasantly surprised.” - Morten K Soerensen
“When I opened my post box this morning and saw the The Print Swap envelope in it, I was so excited that I had to open it right then and there! I am highly impressed that it arrived in one piece as the South African postal services leaves much to be desired at times. Thanks @theprintswap for creating such a wonderful way for artists and photographers to exchange prints!” - Nicola Fouché
“There is so much wonderful art out there, it's overwhelming... I am so thankful that one of my photos was selected for the @theprintswap lineup- I just received this photo in the mail, from a Brisbane-based photographer. Being able to discover other talented artists from around the world makes me feel like I've won the lottery!"- Tova Friedman
"Remember those times, waiting for photos to be developed? Submit an image to #theprintswap , and wait. You'll receive a print, beautifully printed, on actual paper - just not the one you submitted. Images are randomly swapped amongst the participants. So fun!"-Beeke Bartelt
"So grateful to participate in the latest round of Feature Shoot's project @theprintswap. I have enjoyed getting three new works to put up in our house and learn about three new photographers and their work. My three photos went to Italy, Australia and Massachusetts."- Jasmine Anwer
