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.
