CAM presents the third Experimental Print Prize (EPP). Established in 2019, the biennial, non-acquisitive prize is open to artists residing in Victoria. There is a strong tradition of printmaking in Victoria and the EPP seeks to foster new directions in the field, through both the exhibition of shortlisted artists and awarding of prizes.
Unique amongst printmaking prizes, EPP recognises that experimentation and risk are essential to art. Judges Richard Harding and Beverly Knight selected 43 finalists from more than 150 entries.
