It’s time to frame up the new PRINT for the PPFA International Framing Competition, and submit your digital images!

Why compete? Cash prizes, ribbons, and great PR for your framing business!

The new PRINT -- “Making Art is my Guilty Pleasure” -- is fractal art printed on translucent vellum, created with a computer by Richard Cryer. The 5-x-7 inch image on 8.5-x-11 inch paper, costing $40, may be framed horizontally or vertically and the translucent nature of the vellum allows for textures and colors to be seen through the substrate.

This year’s competition PRINT, sponsored by The Great Frame Up/Franchise Concepts. Inc., is available to order at

And/or you can enter the OPEN category, letting your imagination run wild! Showcase a special, favorite framing project, where the possibilities are almost limitless, and you choose the image or object to frame.

The top 50 pieces from the initial digital round will be invited to compete at the PPFA 2020 Convention, hosted by the WCAF Expo at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, January 26-29, 2020. Entries will be showcased at the Expo, and winners celebrated at a Competition Reception.

The PRINT and OPEN 1st place winners will be featured on the cover of Picture Framing Magazine and winners will also be honored in the PPFA CONNECT newsletter, on the PPFA Framers Corner, and in Art World News.

Submissions are now under way and the final deadline to enter is midnight July 31, 2019.
