More categories and Prizes to be announced!


The Rock N’ Print Prize is about anything inspired by Rock & Roll Music & the Rock Poster Movement but also anything that inspires you in Rock N’ Roll art.

Judging Criteria –  Judges are from Illustration, Design, Art, Music and Print backgrounds. We are looking for the poster/s that say Rock N’ Roll the best. With the deliberate different backgrounds of the judges we are looking for great art pieces. Not a technically perfect piece. Punk was not considered Rock N’ Roll until it saved Rock N’ Roll and it’s a long way to Nirvana or Elvis Presley from there – but it’s the Music and the movement that changed the world – let’s see the interpretations as you really see it.

Genre – It must be printed by hand or semi automatic clam shell machine – no offsett / digital or automatic mass output machinery.

The Event – Open to anyone the Rock, Screen, Paper Print Prize is the first Competition of it’s kind in Australia.

Solo act or Band (collaboration) – Entries can be from one person as Designer + Printer or teams of 2 where there is a Designer / Artist and a Printer.



EXHIBITION OPENING Night 30th May + OPEN Saturday 10am – 10pm
