ABOUT THE COMPETITION

ABOUT THE COMPETITION
The Center for Contemporary Printmaking is delighted to announce the 11th Biennial International Miniature Print Competition and Exhibition. This juried competition and exhibition, limited to works that are no more than four square inches (25.8 square cm), encourages artists to explore the miniature print format and provides them with an opportunity for exhibition. It is also an opportunity for artists and the public to view the current concerns of printmakers from around the world. Since its inception in 1997, the competition has attracted entries by more than 1500 artists from around the world and across the U.S.A.
The International Miniature Print Competition is held every other year, alternating with CCP’s other biennial, FootPrint International (for prints measuring 12 x 12 in. exactly).
