The Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s Biennial FOOTPRINT International Competition is an opportunity for the presentation of current trends and innovations in contemporary printmaking within the bounds of the one square foot (12” x 12”) configuration. The square format was uncommon in art until the advent of abstraction, and presents distinct challenges of composition and expression. Within these precise limits, artists must confront a space and create visual order and formal structure.

All fine-art printmaking mediums are eligible for the competition, including woodcut, intaglio, lithography, screenprint, monotype, and original digital media. For 2024, juror Laurel Garber reviewed 394 submissions from artists all over the world. Of these, she selected 95 prints for inclusion in the exhibition. They represent 13 international artists and 73 artists based in the United States.
