PCANZ members are invited to create an edition of 10 prints, 8 of which will be randomly exchanged with other participating members. One print will form part of a set that will be exhibited and available for sale (same price for all) to raise funds towards the 2020 PCANZ Summer School Scholarship. (Details regarding the exhibition and sale will be sent later.)

The remaining print will become a part of a collection showcasing the works of contemporary PCANZ members. This will be added to the PCANZ archive currently held at the Aratoi Museum of Art + History, Wairarapa and will be an invaluable collection to look back on in future years.

Closing date for entries: Friday, July 5, 2019
