Open Call: BKX Winter 2023 Print Suite Sponsorship

The BKX Winter 2023 Print Suite Sponsorship for exhibition proposals, portfolios, and other collections

In the spirit of keeping our sponsorship circuit active for the rest of the year, we are pleased to announce our winter open call.

Our Winter sponsorship is geared towards proposals for exhibitions, portfolios, and other printed collections seeking to represent a body or suite of work. The collection of work can come from a single artist or collective group of artists, and is open to U.S.-based individuals coming from all practices, industries, and backgrounds.

Sponsorship Coverage

  • Full material costs for the edition, including papers[1] and printing supplies
  • Full print service(s) costs for the edition, including standard Photoshop/digital editing work[2], print proofing, printing, cutting, handling, and packing.

Final Deliverables

This sponsorship is not an open call to exhibit, it is for the print production of a body work to go onto exhibition, portfolio review, or collection, organized at behest of the artist.

  • One series of 20 digital archival pigment prints, up to size 20” x 30”. 
  • Outside of the series of 20 prints: A total of 1 BAT and 3-5 Printer’s Proofs, that will be kept by Brooklyn Editions studio, with the potential to be sold through the studio’s official channels based on agreed terms with the Artist[3]
  • All prints will be embossed with our printer's chop:

This sponsorship opportunity guarantees that the Artist(s) will retain all copyright and intellectual property rights of their work. The purpose of this open call is to create more production opportunities for Artists.

Brooklyn Editions will always respect copyright and intellectual property ownership of all Artist’s work. Any and all images used for future promotional purposes and/or artwork sold via official Brooklyn Editions channels will be rightfully credited to the Artist(s). The integrity of all Artists and their work is a fundamental principle of our studio. The Artist(s) in the selected proposal will always have the final say in how their work is produced, and we will do everything we can to ensure a positive and successful collaboration with us.

Application Submission Terms

In the interest of fairness, we are limiting applications to one proposal per applicant/collective, with one submitted PDF document per proposal. If multiple proposals are submitted under the same applicant/collective, we will only review the first one. If we believe that we are being spammed, we reserve the right to block and/or blacklist all communications. We reserve the option to select more than one applicant for multiple sponsorships, at our discretion.

By submitting to this application, you agree that you are the copyright holder for all materials being shared (including images, text, information, and all other details). If you are submitting on behalf of a collective or group of artists, you agree that you have been given the right to submit these materials. Brooklyn Editions is not liable for any content that infringes on another party's copyright. All prints, scans, and final files retain ownership by the applicant, and the studio is to be held harmless in the event of any discrepancy.

This application will be live on September 14th, 2023.

[1] Choice and availability of paper can be determined by the final print dimensions of the edition.

[2] Artists are responsible for providing quality digital files of their work to our studio. If physical artwork needs to be digitized, we can provide referrals, or potentially scan artwork at the Artist’s cost. 

Our Photoshop/digital editing services cover basic adjustments to optimize files best for print, and the determination of our ‘standard’ digital editing services is at our discretion. If we foresee work that starts to become extensive, we will always let the Artist know beforehand, to allow for them to plan their next steps or adjustments. 

[3] Our Terms of Sale are open to further discussion with the Artist, but our standard terms are as follows:

  • For the first year starting from the edition’s official release, or until the edition held by the Artist sells out, Brooklyn Editions will not sell a print from this edition that values more than the Artist’s sale price.
  • If the Artist would like to utilize Brooklyn Editions’ official sales channel and platform to promote and sell prints from the edition held by them, Brooklyn Editions will take a 20% commission price per sale. All fulfillment services (such as packing and drop shipping) that are required to be performed by Brooklyn Editions will come at a cost to the Artist.
