This is the category for artists whose artwork is essentially printed onto a relatively flat surface. This can include monoprints, etching, engraving, serigraphy, woodblock, prints of computer generated images and high quality prints of your work in other media. If you identify as a photographer, even though your work can be printed, please instead enter the Photography category. If you are creating work using AI (Artificial Intelligence) please enter your work in the Experimental Art category.

If you are a Viewer and visitor, please take a look below at some of the art that has been created in the 9 counties of the Bay Area and Sacramento and Santa Cruz counties in this first ever regional series of art prizes. There are other categories you will find very interesting, please visit this one and all the others as well.

And if you are a viewer, please consider donating a tax-deductible donation or purchase a print from some other Bay Area artists who want to sell some of their work to help fund this first ever regional Prize for Art!

If you are an artist and participated in the Prize, you uploaded up to eight (8) of your works of art for $10 each. Your work was reviewed and then placed immediately up on this website for everyone to see. Your work was then eligible for a Winning Prize or Honorable Mention.

There is one winning work of art at $500 and an essay and 3 honorable mentions at $100 each for this category! The $100 awards are cash awards or a gift certificate to a Bay Area store specializing in art-related services for the Printmaking Artists’ group. As well there are 2 more voted awards which your work would also be eligible for, voted on after the Prize for Art closed until November 22!

Each category is awarded separately so that artists are not competing with all the other participating artists, but only those in the category in which you have uploaded any individual work of art. Each artist is eligible for one award per category. Works that have won in the previous Prize for Art are not eligible for the 2023 Sheridan Prize for Art. The Prize for Art ended November 8. The Winner and Honorable Mentions are now shown here! Please also come back often to see the results. Good luck, everyone!
