The deadline for the competition is May 15, 2007. Miniprint Finland will be organized for the 6th time. It is an exceptionally comprehensive and notable graphic arts presentation both nationally and internationally. It has established its position among miniature graphic art exhibitions and the interest for the event has been constantly growing.

An international jury will select the works to be exhibited and distribute the prizes.

The winners of the Grand Prix prize of EUR 3,000 and two honorary prizes of EUR 1,500 will be published and the prizes awarded at the opening ceremony of the exhibition in November 2007.

A full colour catalogue portraying the exhibited prints will accompany the exhibition. The catalogue will be sold at Lahti Art Museum and in the shop of the Graphic Artist Association of Lahti at Art Brewery.
