Call for Submissions: The Ontario Miniature Print Exhibition (TOMPE2020)
REVISED CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Print London Presents:
The deadline for The Ontario Miniature Print Exhibition (TOMPE2020) has been extended to June 12, 2020, in response to the widespread disruptions and extenuating circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Ontario-based professional artists are invited to submit miniature prints for a juried exhibition that will be held at Satellite Project Space in London, Ontario, from July 29 to August 15, 2020. Please note that we hope that it will be possible for TOMPE2020 to be a physical exhibition, but if that plan cannot go forward, the exhibition will be held virtually.
Submissions must meet the following criteria:
- Up to 4 original prints in any printmaking medium or combination of mediums (relief, etching, lithography, silkscreen, digital, 3D prints). Photographs and machine-produced reproductions will not be accepted.
- Prints should have been completed after May 2017
- The support / paper size must not exceed 8 x 8 inches (20 x 20 cm); for 3D prints, the dimensions must not exceed 8 x 8 x 8 inches (20 x 20 x 20 cm)
New Submission Requirements:
Due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, Print London has modified some of the submission details announced in the previous call, as follows:
Interested artists are being asked to submit their works digitally. Submissions will be juried virtually by a panel of three jurors:
Helen Gregory, Curator, McIntosh Gallery

Artists must submit their work by email to email@example.com with the following:
- Name, address, email, phone number

Entry fees are non-refundable.
The Jury will select prints to be exhibited and prize winners. Artists will be notified of the Jury’s decision via email by June 30, 2020. In the event of a physical exhibition, artists whose prints are selected will be required to mail their prints (without mats or frames) to Museum London (Attn: Brian Meehan, Executive Director) by July 13, 2020. Details will be communicated to participating artists closer to the date of the exhibition.
Diversity and creating a culture of inclusion is important to Print London. We encourage submissions from artists who identify as Indigenous, racialized, having disabilities, and from persons of any sexual identities and gender identities, as well as new generation artists.
