Miniprint Finland 2007

Call for competition of miniature graphics

The Graphic Artist Association of Lahti and the Lahti Art Museum are pleased to invite the artists to participate in the 6th International Miniprint Finland 2007 miniature graphics triennial.

The 5th International Miniprint Finland 2004 miniature graphics triennial collects the best representatives in the field from the whole world to the exhibition in The Lahti Art Museum from November 16th 2007 to February 3th 2008. The protector of the event is the President of Finland, Tarja Halonen.

The Graphic Artist Association of Lahti has been responsible for arrangements from the start of the exhibition in 1992. The Lahti Art Museum has taken part in organizing since 1998.

The Miniprint Finland exhibition is an unusually large and notable graphic arts presentation both nationally and internationally. It has established its position among the international miniature graphic special art exhibitions. Interest in this triennial is increasing after every event. About 800 artists from 61 countries have sent nearly 2800 prints to the Miniprint Finland triennial 2004. The corresponding numbers in 1998 were 1700 prints from 478 artists from 52 countries.

An international jury will select the works which will be accepted into the exhibition. The jury will consist one member from the Graphic Artists Association of Finland, one from the Art Museum of Lahti, one from the Graphic artists’ association of Lahti and one winner of the previous Miniprint.

The deadline for the competition is May 15th 2007, when the filled participation form and fee enclosed in an envelope or the copy of the receipt must be sent to the address:

Lahti Art Museum, p.B. 113, 15111 LAHTI, Finland,

with the competition graphic works

The prizes of the competition:

The four–color exhibition catalogue of the Miniprint Finland 2007 triennial is a printed matter containing over 200 pages, presenting the artists and their works in the exhibition. There is a similar catalogue also about the Miniprint events 2001 and 2004 published.
