The prize winners were: Lisa Andren, Hormuz Narielwella, Tom Hammick, Nif Hodgson, Manami Ito and Sun Ju Lee. All of the artists have their own unique take on the art of print making and highlight the diversity of print and the popularity of the art all over the world, representing the UK, Europe and America.

Art lovers can flock to 25 venues across the region involved in the International print Biennale – which attracted over 130,000 visitors in 2014 – to celebrate the role of print work in contemporary art.
