Theprintspace has a unique hands-on approach to professional and photographic printing, where you the photographer have total control on how your images turn out. What's more, theprintspace gives you access to all of the technology and hardware of a conventional prolab, but at a fraction of the cost.

From start to finish help and assistance is available, giving you the chance to create the best quality prints at the lowest possible price. In Matt's words, “making sure my prints look good is very important to me. From beautiful tests and proofs to send to magazines; to vivid prints you can touch or put on a wall, in a gallery, or in a portfolio, printing is an essential part of my photography.” Our distinctive way of working means that theprintspace has become a sensation, with support from a huge number of cutting-edge and younger photographers. Our digital C-type technology is a true photographic print from a digital file, and in most cases prints can be picked up on the same day. We also have an online ordering service, which has the option to upload your files directly over the internet.

Here's what Matt says about his photography: “My pictures draw on the energy that still exists inside of me from when I was younger. You know, when you are a teenager you get to a stage where you think that anything is possible. You think you're indestructible, that life if yours, and you can do and say what the fuck you want and nobody is going to stop you. […] I use the seconds before that moment as a starting place, like the universe just before the Big Bang. If I can look at a picture and be reminded of that feeling of critical mass – of feeling full, indestructible – then I know I have succeeded.”

File submissions should be in JPG form at 72dpi and entries should contain no more than 5 images. Please make sure you also have access to high- resolution versions of the files, at 300dpi and if possible, sized to 20”x30” inches. Please ensure you have permission to use your images before submission as any images found violating copyrights will not be considered for entry.
