Exhibition Coordinator’s Message

Under normal circumstances, our Exhibition would be both a Print and PDI Exhibition.  Due to the Covid Pandemic, and with great reluctance, we are unable to stage a print exhibition this time, due to the logistics that exhibiting prints demands.  However, SPS has always been dedicated to all aspects of print production and it is our intention to have prints as part of our future Exhibitions.


All acceptances in this affiliated exhibition count towards a BPE Crown Award.

There are many Trophies to be won. 

  • PAGB Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals, Selectors Medals,
  • PAGB Ribbons, BPE Ribbons and SPS Certificate of Merits.

All entrants will receive an Exhibition Catalogue.

The Opening Ceremony, if permitted due to covid regulations at the time, will be held on 27th March, 2021.

PDI viewing will be shown on our website and made available at selected venues.  To be advised.
