FISAE Open Ex-Libris Competition

2020. 01. 27

with Awards by the Keith Wingrove Memorial Trust

We invite artists from all countries to participate in this competition. It aims to promote the commissioning of contemporary exlibris and encourage use of all techniques for their production.

In addition to a first prize of £1,250 there are subsidiary open prizes plus additional awards for student artists resident in (1) the UK & Republic of Ireland and (2) Australia, New Zealand & Canada. This reflects our particular desire to encourage participation by young artists currently studying art.

The deadline for receiving entries has been extended from 31 March 2020 to 31 May 2020

This competition is being organised by The Bookplate Society on behalf of FISAE, with the prize pool generously sponsored by the Keith Wingrove Memorial Trust. In addition, Ms Christine Bell has kindly donated funds for an extra award.

Keith Everard Wingrove (1910-1995) was an Australian-born collector of art, books and exlibris. He was a member of The Bookplate Society and well known to the international exlibris fellowship of his time. Of note, Wingrove had personal pictorial bookplates designed by Mark Severin, Yoichi Kenmoku, Derek Riley, Norman Lindsay and Lionel Lindsay. The Keith Wingrove Memorial Trust was established to conduct the Australian Bookplate Design Award which is itself running a separate competition with high value prizes (entry deadline for that award is mid-October 2020).
