Announcing the Winner and the five Honorable Mentions for Printmaking


The Juror's choice for the winning image is "Tierra De los Sueños" by Luz Marina Ruiz

Read former San Francisco Bay Guardian critic Harry Roche's essay on the winning artist.


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 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 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 perhaps 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 have 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 will then be eligible for a Winning Prize or Honorable Mention.

There will be one winning work of art at $500 and an essay and 5 honorable mentions at $100 each for this category! The $100 awards will be 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 closes until November 21!

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 2022 Sheridan Prize for Art. The Winner and Honorable Mentions will be announced here as soon as possible after November 21! Please also come back after that date to see the results. Good luck, everyone!
