International Postcard Show 2024: Call for Submissions

Surface invites artists from across the world to participate in our annual International Postcard Show.

All submissions will be included in this vibrant and hugely popular exhibition. The International Postcard Show will feature hundreds of original creations in an array of different media by established and aspiring artists from all over the world. 

Artists can choose to have their work on sale during the exhibition; postcards will be priced at £15 each. If postcards remain unsold, all participants have the opportunity to exchange their postcard with another artist, who will be randomly selected at the end of the exhibition.

This year, for the first time, artists will also have the option to donate their artwork to #sophiespostcard, which has now raised over £82k for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in memory of former pupil of St Richard’s Catholic College, Sophie Maria Taylor. #sophiespostcard is a secret auction consisting of original postcard-sized artworks, donated by professional artists, up-and-coming artists from the school and the general public. More than 3,000 original postcard sized artworks have been created and auctioned on eBay for the event since the first auction in 2018. World famous artists and celebrities have taken part, including: Sir Quentin Blake, Gilbert and George, Axel Scheffler, Lorraine Kelly, and many more. All details

In the case of no sale or if you opt out of selling your work(s) and do not wish to take part in the international exchange, or to donate your postcards to #sophiespostcard, your artwork will be returned to you via post following the exhibition.

The deadline for submissions is 6pm, Friday 5th January


We will be awarding prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place postcards, selected by the exhibition coordinators. There will also be our annual People’s Prize, where visitors to the exhibition will have a chance to vote for their favorite postcard. The creator of the selected postcard will win a free exhibition in Le Loovre.
