The following (slightly edited) information and list of venues appears courtesy of Damian Kelly, General Manager, Print Council of Australia Inc.

"Each year the PCA calls for nominations and independently selects artists to produce a commissioned edition of high quality prints especially for our members. This year's judges were Thomas Middlemost, Curator, Charles Sturt University and Linda Elliott, Curator of Public Programmes, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. The prints are purchased in advance, through a mail order system.

Details of the prints are released in the September issue of IMPRINT magazine. The artist proofs of all editions are on display at venues in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney. Order Forms are made available in the September issue of IMPRINT, and members select their print (or prints) in preference order. In total there are some 300 prints for subscribers, these are allocated in order of Order Forms being received. Allocated prints are posted to subscribers at the end of November.

Numerous public art museums, schools and galleries have been long time participants of the program, and many individual collectors are now also joining. This means that it's possible to buy prints that are also being purchased by many of Australia’s well known state and regional galleries."

Each commissioned artist has produced 6 artist's proofs which were forwarded to each of the venues below on 30 August. It is recommended to check individual galleries for hours and viewing times, but the works should be on show somewhere between 10 September and 24 October. The ten prints will initially be launched at Handmark Gallery in Hobart on Friday 10th September 2010.
