The Print Exposed 2020 is split into 2 groups  – those who are invited those who have submitted works for approval. It is the submitted works that qualify for Mike Ware Award.  The Mike Ware Award is made on the the combination of visual artistic merit, the craftsmanship of the work and the control of the scientific processes that create these images.

In 2019 the Mike Ware Award was presented to Danielle Edwards  for the The Sentinel ( Eucalyptus camaldulensis), a printed out, Platinum Palladium photograph, captured in infrared creating an incredible luminosity.
