In order to promote the development and exchange of printmaking in Macao, the Cultural Affairs Bureau held the 1st Macao Printmaking Triennial in 2012, which was well received by local and foreign artists. This year, the Cultural Affairs Bureau organises once again this international printmaking exhibition, the “3rd Macao Printmaking Triennial”, aiming to improve this printmaking exchange platform and encourage the combination of more cultural and artistic elements in the art of printmaking. Gold, silver and bronze Prizes as well as several Honourable Mentions will be awarded, in order to encourage and attract the participation of outstanding works from all over the world.
There are no restrictions as to the printmaking types and production techniques. Works must have been produced in the last three years and must have not been exhibited in previous editions of the Macao Printmaking Triennial. The size of the works on paper must not exceed 1m2, and each applicant may submit a maximum of two works. The works must not be mounted and should be submitted in scroll by mail to the following address: No. 517, Avenida da Praia Grande, Nam Tung Commercial Building, 19th floor, Macao. The Organizer will invite a number of renowned experts and printmakers from China and other countries to form a panel of judges.
