Participants are provided a professionally photographed image of their work which is also added to BigInk.org.

No Submission Fee

BIG INK doesn't charge a submission fee and only collects a participation fee from artists accepted in the program.

Testimonials

“They encouraged all the participants to work together to execute their prints. The event inspired me to continue exploring scale and surface in my practice and opened up a new channel of communication with a great group of artists.”

Enrique FigueredoArtist, enriquefigueredo.com

“BIG INK is a great way to connect students with creative entrepreneurs working in the field. They came fully prepared to print, brought amazing works, and shared words of wisdom with my printmaking class.”

Bill CassInstructor, New Hampshire Institute of Art

“Coordinating a call-for-entry with BIG INK went smoothly, they had something for everyone at the event (including smaller blocks for community members to print), and a nice mix of local and out-of-town artists visited our studio as a result.”
