The CPM National Print Awards  began in a disusedgarage near a pigsty on the outskirts of Murwillumbah. The grouprecently revised their mission statement, with CPM now being defined as“an artists’ cooperative creating and sharing the free flow of imagination".This ethos also colours the Print Awards, where CPM is not content tosimply stage a competitive ‘prize’, but wishes to continue to challengethe boundaries of the print. The CPM National Print Awards has always encouraged innovative and experimental printmaking through its different prize categories.
