Call for submissions
Download the application form here
Surface Gallery invites artists from across the world to participate in our annual International Postcard Show.
All submissions will be included in this vibrant and hugely popular exhibition. The International Postcard Show will feature hundreds of original creations in an array of different media by established and aspiring artists from all over the world.
All artists can choose to have their work on sale during the exhibition; postcards will be priced at £15 each. If postcards remain unsold, all participants have the opportunity to exchange their postcard with another artist, who will be randomly selected at the end of the exhibition.
In the case of no sale or if you opt out of selling your work(s) and do not wish to take part in the international exchange, your postcards will be returned to you via post following the exhibition.
Submissions Deadline: Friday 4th January 2019, 6pm
We will be awarding prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place postcards, selected by the exhibition coordinators. There will also be our annual People’s Prize, where visitors to the exhibition will have the chance to vote for their favourite postcard. The creator of the selected postcard will win a free exhibition in Le Loovre.
