PigPrints is inviting artists and art students from all over the world to submit their work for its 2022 Residency Prize competition.
The purpose of this prize is to give an individual artist the possibility of producing a limited edition etching and add their work to the existing list of artists that are already part of the gallery.
The selected artist will also be invited to spend a 2-week residency period in Milan to produce other work in our printshop.
