Give and receive prints. Build your collection. Exhibit your work globally!

Photographers of all backgrounds and from all parts of the world are invited to submit to The Print Swap, brought to you by team behind the photography website, Feature Shoot. The Print Swap is an opportunity for photographers to collect carefully curated prints and engage with other photographers around the globe. 

How it works

Photographers who are selected by our curators to take part will both give AND receive a print. This means that your photo will be professionally printed on archival paper and sent out to another hand-selected Print Swap photographer. In return, you'll be able to choose the print you want to swap with, taken by a fellow participant. The cost of entry is just US$40 per image (we cover printing and shipping). 

To submit, simply hashtag your images on Instagram #theprintswap or apply directly here.

We're thrilled to announce the Print Swap summer exhibition will open at the esteemed FOLEY Gallery in New York City's Lower East Side for a special one night only exhibition on July 23.

The renowned gallerist Michael Foley will curate the show, and the final exhibition will include 25-30 photographs from The Print Swap. Foley has been a leading figure in the fine art photography world for thirty years, serving at some of New York and San Francisco's most prominent galleries for fourteen years before opening the FOLEY Gallery in 2004 with a focus on photography. Throughout his career, Foley has kept a keen eye on rising and emerging talents, fostering new generations of artists as an educator at School of Visual Arts and the International Center of Photography and as the co-founder of The Exhibition Lab, a study space for fine art photographers.
