Tokyo International Mini-Print Triennial has been held 4 times since 1995, with the aim of displaying and introducing the world's latest contemporary prints and collecting scholarly data on materials, techniques, and expressions of printmaking. This year's Triennial is an open competition, which is an exhibition to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the foundation of Tama Art University in 2015.
Entries must be prints produced in or after 2013.
Entry is limited to 1 work per artist.
Entries must be signed and numbered (edition number) by the artist.
Entrants can use any type or technique of printmaking, but the organizer will not accept prints merely output from a computer printer.
Print size (including the surrounding paper) must not exceed 20.0 x 25.0cm.
The organizer may reject entries that are likely to soil or damage the facilities or that are difficult to handle.
