Haugesund International Festival of Relief Printing – Call for Entries

HIT will be Norway’s first international relief printing festival. The HIT festival will be a juried exhibition, open for all print artists. Each artist may contribute with one work of art. Up to four items in the same series will be regarded as one work of art. Among the prints selected by the jury to proceed from the first stage, three works will finally be announced as prize winners with sums of respectively NOK 100 000, 50 000 and 30 000.

The first prize winner will be invited to give a separate exhibition in Haugesund Billedgalleri (Haugesund Museum of Fine Art) in 2021. The winning work will be acquired by the gallery and made part of the gallery’s art collection. Artists may apply with works within relief print (wood print, lino print etc.).

Relief print works combined with other techniques/expressions are also welcome. If other materials are involved, the main element must be relief print. The HIT festival will run from 10 May to 4 Aug 2019.
