About the Competition

The Center for Contemporary Printmaking is delighted to announce the 7th 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 cm2) aims to encourage artists to explore the miniature print format and provides them with an opportunity for exhibition. Further, it is an opportunity for artists and the public to view the current concerns of printmakers from near and far.

Since its inception in 1997, the competition has grown to attract artists from around the world. In 2007, CCP received 548 entries by 180 artists, who came from 18 different countries and 22 states within the United States. The International Miniature Print Competition is held every other year, alternating with CCP’s new biennial, Footprint International.
