The International Postcard Show 2024: Call for Submissions
Surface invites artists from across the world to participate in our annual International Postcard Show.
All submissions will be included in this vibrant and hugely popular exhibition. The International Postcard Show will feature hundreds of original creations in an array of different media by established and aspiring artists from all over the world.
Artists can choose to have their work on sale during the exhibition; postcards will be priced at £15 each. If postcards remain unsold, all participants have the opportunity to exchange their postcard with another artist, who will be randomly selected at the end of the exhibition.
This year, artists will also have the option to donate their artwork to #sophiespostcard, which has now raised over £82k for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in memory of former pupil of St Richard’s Catholic College, Sophie Maria Taylor. #sophiespostcard is a secret auction consisting of original postcard-sized artworks, donated by professional artists, up-and-coming artists from the school and the general public. More than 3,000 original postcard sized artworks have been created and auctioned on eBay for the event since the first auction in 2018. World famous artists and celebrities have taken part, including: Sir Quentin Blake, Gilbert and George, Axel Scheffler, Lorraine Kelly, and many more. All details www.sophiespostcard.com
