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).
All participating images will now be featured on one or more of the following: Feature Shoot, @featureshoot, @theprintswap or on Facebook (reaching over 350,000 photography enthusiasts)! Participating photographers will also have their image considered for our new store Superfine Prints.
To submit, simply hashtag your images on Instagram #theprintswap or email them to us (at 620px wide) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your image is selected for The Print Swap, we will be in touch via Instagram or email with details.
Hashtag your images #theprintswap on Instagram by September 2, 2018 to be considered for our upcoming exhibition at The Other Art Fair in London!
We’re thrilled to announce our first-ever exhibition in London, opening this October as part of The Other Art Fair. Our guest curator will be Caroline Hunter, the Picture Editor at The Guardian Weekend Magazine. As always, we invite photographers to submit by tagging #theprintswap on Instagram. Participating photographers must submit between now and September 2nd, 2018, in order to be considered for the London show.*
Organized by Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair is a fixture of the UK photography community. With a focus on emerging artists, the event brings together some of the world’s best independent talent and leading collectors and editors. Over seven years, the fair has connected hundreds of artists with a wider public, both within the realm of traditional gallery settings and beyond. The Other Art Fair, once described by Time Out as “overflowing with creative talent,” has become the next frontier in the London art scene and has expanded its reach with additional fairs in the United States and Australia.
*Photographers selected for the exhibition will be notified via email by September 22, 2018. Please note: Selection to The Print Swap does not necessarily mean selection to the exhibition.
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
