Compact Prints Jnr

Umbrella welcomes the next generation of printmakers with our first Compact Prints Jnr program in 2024. Drawing on the popularity of the previous Students in Case program (2010-2016), Compact Prints Jnr aims to provide an opportunity for school students based in the North Queensland region to professionally exhibit their work and to exchange prints with other students. Participation is free for Compact Prints Jnr and prints will not be auctioned or sold. At the end of the exhibition, prints will be exchanged through a random selection process with other participating schools.

To participate, teachers must adhere to the following deadlines:

5pm Friday 29 March 2024 - register (via the form on this page) their contact details and quantity of students in the class.

5pm Friday 31 May 2024 - download the template spreadsheet on this page, complete the full details for their classes' prints, then upload the completed spreadsheet via the upload field below.

5pm Thursday 6 June 2024 - Deliver each students' 2 identical prints to Umbrella.

1 - 31 August 2024 (during Umbrella's usual opening hours) - collect their students’ exhibition and exchanged prints. 

There is a cap on the quantity of participating classes to this program and exhibition, due to limited exhibition space. Once teachers have registered 150+ students, the registration form will be removed from this page. In this instance, teachers can join the waitlist for potential cancellations or future iterations of the program by contacting us.  

Participation from individual students, and classes based outside of the North Queensland region, is still welcomed in Compact Prints, however in that instance, the registration fee and details must be submitted individually per the standard registration process here

Artwork restrictions and recommendations
Participating students must provide 2 prints from 1 artwork edition. The paper size of each print must measure 12 x 12cm however the print may be any size on that paper (including full-page bleeds). Prints that are oversized may be omitted or cropped. Prints can include other materials / methods (e.g. chine-collé, stitching) provided that a form of printing is the primary method, and that each of the 2 prints is identical. Umbrella encourages students to print on high-quality acid-free paper. Digital prints cannot just be photographs - they must be manipulated. There is no set theme however Umbrella reserves the right to monitor or refuse work that may cause offence to the general public. The prints must be newly created (after 1 January 2023).

Exhibition details
The exhibition opening will commence 6pm Friday 21 June 2024. The exhibition will be on display 21 June - 21 July 2024.

Exchange details
After the exhibition closes, Umbrella will select pairings for artwork exchanges using an automated, randomised process. Each teacher will receive a spreadsheet letter detailing the students' prints they are receiving and which school received their exchange print.
