CPSA 26th International

CPSA 26th Annual International Exhibition and Convention

The CPSA International Exhibition is exclusively for works done in 100% colored pencil. It is held in a different city each year so more people can enjoy viewing the artwork. In 2017, awards totaling $16,300 were distributed to the 13 winners selected by an independent juror, including $5,000 for the Best of Show / CIPPY award winner.

The prospectus will be available by December 1, 2017. Entries open December 15, 2017, and end on March 31, 2018. Complete entry information will be in the prospectus.

Each year CPSA holds a convention near its exhibition. In 2018, the convention will be held at the Crowne Plaza Chicago West Loop. Information about the convention will be available by January 1, 2018, and convention registration will begin on January 15.
