Size Requirements:
Each print may not exceed a total of 9 square inches or 58 square
centimeters, though different configurations are possible. Paper size is required to be 8 inches by 11 inches or
20.32 by 27.94 centimeters.

Entry Conditions:
All entries must be mailed to MGC, unframed and unmatted, for
consideration. Local residents may drop work off in person. Emailed images and applications will not be accepted. Accepted prints will be presented for exhibition by Manhattan Graphics Center. All accepted works must be for sale, with MGC retaining a commission of 40% of the purchase price of each print. Prints not chosen for the exhibition will be placed in binders and available for examination and purchase during the exhibition. Fees and print labels must accompany entry forms for work to be considered.

Entry Fee:
The entry fee of $35 for US artists ($30 for Manhattan Graphics
Center members) and $40 for international artists covers up to three
entries. Additional entries may be sent for an additional $10 per entry. Acceptable forms of payment include personal checks (drawn on US banks), money orders and credit card (VISA or MasterCard only). Do not send cash. Currencies other than US dollars cannot be accepted.

All selected artists will be notified via e-mail by September 30, 2015.

Pricing your work:
Experience has shown that works priced competitively, especially
those below $100, return the highest sales. Artists are encouraged to
price their works accordingly.

Entry Procedures:
Complete the entry form and attach an identification label to the back
of each print you wish to enter. All entries must be sent flat and
unmatted and must include a self addressed return package sized to
fit the prints (US entries must include return postage). Send these
