Enter our new Open framing competition!

If you would like to create an entry entirely of your own design without using our framing competition print, then our Open Competition is for you!

You can enter any piece of original framing work using an object of your choice. Entries will be exhibited at the trade show where they will be judged by a panel of framing experts.
This is a great way to exhibit and promote your work to a wider audience!

Entries will be judged on their technical ability, originality, creativity and ability to solve a challenging design problem. The competition is a design competition and as such conservation considerations will not be assessed.

Entries must be no larger than one metre on their longest side and entrants must be able to deliver and collect their entry from the centre.

Art & Frame 2013

Plans are now in process for ART & FRAME 2013.

After running successful shows in Sydney since 2005, we will be bringing the show to Melbourne in 2013 for the first time in six years.

The show is being re-launched for Melbourne as ART & FRAME 2013 and will be expanded to include a large Art focus area open to the public, in addition to the art and framing suppliers trade exhibition which will continue to be exclusive to members of the industry. The combined event will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, from September 13 – 15.

The exhibition area for ART & FRAME 2013 will be more than three times the size of the area at the last show in Sydney.

The event will also continue its successful co-location with the imaging and entertainment expo,  The Digital Show, which result in a total of 12 halls of show floor.

We will also be working in conjunction with the PPFA (Professional Picture Framers Association) and PMA (Photo Marketing Association) to develop an education and conference program to coincide with the exhibition. If you have any ideas or suggestions for the show or conference we would love to hear from you. More news will be posted as further details become available.

The Framing Show has been the premier trade event for the art and framing industry in Australia since the first show was held 2004 and attracts exhibitors and visitors from across Australia, as well as the Asia Pacific region, Europe and the United States.
