TYPA thanks all the artists who participated in the contest! This year’s contest was already 7th and the works were sent from 14 different countries. The first Linocut Contest took place in 2016 and was a small, local contest to raise awareness and to teach and introduce linocut technique in Tartu and in Estonia. With every year the participants number as well as the countries where the participants are from is rising. Over the course of 7 years we have received more than 300 linocuts from more than 30 countries from all over the world.
Next year’s linocut contest theme will be announced at the beginning of yar 2023. Read more from Linocut contest.
