Over the competition’s 25-year history, the Musée de Charmey has had the privilege of hosting and exhibiting close to 400 artists from 35 countries.
The Triennial is open to all artists who work with paper. In other words, artists who use paper to create works of art by transforming the material itself rather than using it solely as a support or vehicle, and for whom paper occupies a prominent place in their larger oeuvre.
The International Paper Triennial is a juried art exhibition open to all artists who use paper to create works of art, whereby the substance is transformed and is not used merely as a support or vehicle.
Artists may submit up to three works. It will then fall to the jury to choose which works will be exhibited at the Musée de Charmey as part of the 10th International Paper Triennial, to be held from 26 April to 4 October 2020!.
A registration pack must be submitted to the Museum via the Museum’s website, or by post or by email before 15 November 2019. No documents will be returned to the artists unless explicitly requested.

– Second prize 2,000 Swiss francs
– Third prize 1,000 Swiss francs
