In February this year, Fen Ditton Gallery called for contemporary printmakers to enter the inaugural Contemporary Printmaking Prize - a new initiative to highlight the exciting works of UK artists working in the field of print.

We were thrilled to receive over 550 submissions for the prize and a final shortlist of 40 artists has been selected by our panel of judges, all specialists within the printmaking world: Sculptor and draughtsman, Nigel Hall RA, Printmaker and collage artist, Rebecca Jewell and Curator of prints at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Elenor Ling.

The prize was free to enter and the overall winner will receive £500 and receive the opportunity to be featured across the Fen Ditton Gallery networks and record an interview with Hannah on our podcast.

The shortlisted works will be on display at the gallery from Friday 16th April - Sunday 16th May.

To follow government guidelines, masks are compulsory and limited numbers will be permitted in the gallery at any one time.

Fen Ditton Gallery is a contemporary art gallery, run by mother and daughter team, Lotte Attwood and Hannah Munby, with advice and programme input from independent curator, Amanda Game.

Situated in the heart of Fen Ditton village, just a short cycle ride along the river from central Cambridge, Lotte moved into the property in October 2017 and worked on the conversion of this handsome Victorian National School building with the help of Amanda Game and architect Matthew Maier of Brocklehurst Architects.

Since its opening in May 2018, Fen Ditton Gallery has introduced world-renowned artists and makers to the space and continues to hold an exciting collection of exhibitions and events.
