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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're thrilled to announce that submissions are now officially open for our next exhibition, opening this spring at Studio Galerie B&B in Paris.
Photographers who participate in The Print Swap between now and March 31st will be considered by the photographer and gallery director Elise Prudhomme to be part of the show. As always, anyone can apply by tagging their best images #theprintswap on Instagram.
Under the leadership of photographers Prudhomme and Philippe Bachelier, Studio Galerie B&B is a hub for artists, providing a stunning gallery space in addition to its studio and darkroom facilities. Positioned between Canal Saint-Martin and Gare de 'Est, the gallery's elegant windows face bustling street, where locals and tourists can pop in to see work from photographers around the world. The final selection of exhibiting images will be announced shortly after the March 31st deadline, and in the meantime, you can stay updated by following along on Instagram at @theprintswap.
This year, The Print Swap is will expand to include a photo book! Going forward, our founder Alison Zavos will choose 15-20 images each month from photographers who have participated in The Print Swap to include in our annual book, published at the end of 2019.
Hashtag your images #theprintswap on Instagram by March 31, 2019 to be considered for our exhibition at Studio Galerie B&B in Paris.
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
