Based in the historic Fitzroy Town Hall in Melbourne, Victoria, the Print Council of Australia (PCA) is a national not-for-profit member organisation that promotes contemporary Australian fine art printmaking and print media, including artist’s books, zines, digital art and works on paper, and provides support and advocacy for artists. Through publications, commissioned editions, exhibitions and other events we work to foster a greater appreciation of original prints and an understanding of the history of Australian printmaking amongst our members, collectors and the wider community.
Our quarterly publication, IMPRINT, has been produced since 1966 and is Australia's only magazine dedicated to printmaking and print media. IMPRINT has developed over 48 years from a four-page black and white document, to a high quality colour publication packed with articles, interviews, images, exhibition information, news and events. Members of the Print Council receive four editions of IMPRINT each year, delivered to their door.
We also run an annual Print Commission program that provides a platform through which emerging and established print artists can develop their skills, gain exposure and have their work acquired by significant collections across the country and around the world. Up to 10 artists are commissioned each year to create an edition of prints that are then made available for purchase and are featured in IMPRINT magazine. The Print Commission is a major fundraising program for the PCA and aims to develop and expand the audience for fine art prints and works on paper.
More information about our activities, exhibitions and events can be found on the website, through our monthly e-newsletter and on the Print Council's Facebook page.
