The RBSA Print prize exhibition is held every other year. It attracted a UK-wide entry of some 240 works, of which only about a quarter were selected for this exhibition. The judges were Mychael Barratt, an elected member and the immediate past President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (the RE) and Leonie Bradley, the Editor of Printmaking Today and an elected member of the Society of Wood engravers.
Both have won a number of prestigious awards for their printmaking.
