PPFA International Framing Competition 2017-18

Compete against top framers from around the world • Winner to be featured on the cover of Picture Framing Magazine • Top 50 pieces will be showcased at the WCAF Expo in Las Vegas

PRINT Category

This year we have a special challenge for you—a 6”x6” print on metal, “Sun Dappled II.” With no hanging system attached, you must properly display this in a way that will support the piece without harming it. You’ll also have to enhance the monochromatic color scheme without taking away from the artwork.

Are you up for this challenge?

Let your imagination run wild! Showcase a special, favorite framing project in our OPEN Competition, where the possibilities are almost limitless, and you choose the image or object to frame. We’ve had all kinds of wonderful images and objects over the years—wedding invitations, animal portraits, pottery, a chunk of the Berlin Wall, a historic book, a miner’s lamp, and a ‘circus carousel,’ to name just a few!
