Now in its second edition, the Contemporary Miniprint of Kazanlak is an International Competition whose aim is to provide a platform for artists, curators, collectors and art lovers to gather and exchange ideas on the multiplicity of artistic styles, mediums and manufacturing processes that have come to characterize contemporary printmaking.
Following the resounding success of its 2013 opening, the month long event in the historical town of Kazanlak, Bulgaria, invites once again international artists to submit both traditional and digital/experimental works holistically addressing the diversity and open-endedness of the creative process of printmaking.
Additionally to accepting works for the exhibition, the jury shall award two joint first prizes (and up to 3 honorary mentions): First prize in traditional printmaking and First prize in experimental printmaking/mixed media/digital media. Awarded artists will be invited to submit an additional portfolio of works to be featured alongside the exhibition for the complete duration of the event.
The deadline to apply is Friday, April 20th, 2014, but the ‘Early Bird’ registration period ends on December 31st, 2013. Please review the rules of entry and registration guidelines hereby attached.
