Students must be enrolled full-time and in good academic standing to be eligible. Additionally, students must be enrolled in printmaking during one of both semesters of the current academic year.

Students are not, however, required to be Printmaking majors; all majors are eligible provided the virtue of the character of the work submitted in print media contribute substantially to the quality of the whole body of work.

The following three persons comprised the jury committee.

  • Mikae Hara (MFA 1986), now an Osaka University of Arts faculty member
  • Margo Humphrey (guest juror), faculty, University of Maryland Art Department
