There are only two forms for the print competitions. Monochrome and color prints are grouped together:

These forms are also available at the competition table on the nights of Print Competition, but we suggest downloading and filling out the forms prior to the meeting to save time and make the process faster for the committee.


  • Members should present their prints and entry form at the competition table no later than 7:30 PM on the print competition night.
  • After receiving notification from the competition committee regarding “accepted” prints for year-end judging, it is the responsibility of the print maker to deliver those prints to the committee as instructed.
