About the Competition
The Center for Contemporary Printmaking sponsored its first International Miniature Print Competition in 1997. Since then the Competition has expanded, reaching artists all over the world. 589 prints from 205 artists from 25 countries were received for the last exhibition in 2005.
The goals of the competition are to encourage artists to explore the miniature print format, to provide an opportunity for exhibition, and to enable the public to observe the creative efforts of artists in the U.S. and abroad.
