Our next two shows C & D will be held this summer, and are being organised in collaboration with Johannes Romppanen, a Finish photographer who we have been working with to lay the foundation for the two linked events.
This call for submissions will close on 18 July 2012, after which William, Kevin, and Johannes will meet up in Brighton to select the books for each show from the same pool of submissions.
Where and when?
C Book Show will be held at the fantastic new premises of Create Studios in Brighton, England.
17 – 19 August 2012
D Book Show will be held at the Finnish Museum of Photography in Helsinki, Finland.
31 August – 2 September 2012
What we are looking for..
Supporting both emerging and established artists, our aim is to raise the profile of artist-led photobooks, with particular focus on self-published or hand-crafted works.
So if you have produced a book we want to see it! Submissions are open to all territories, and we encourage people to submit work which pushes the medium and has maybe not been seen before.
How to submit
We have a new online submission form on the website, where you can enter your details and pay the submission fee of £5 per book securly via paypal.
Please note on the form that you will have the option to post your book to a UK or Finnish address – it doesn’t matter what address you post to.
Once you have registered this information via the website, you will need to post your book to us to arrive before the closeing deadline 18 July 2012.
If you are unable to post your book to us, under some circumstances we will allow PDF submissions. For example, this may be because you have only one copy which is being exhibited elsewhere – please email us first if you would like to do this.
During the submission process, you will be asked whether you would like your book returned to you or donated to the Photobookshow archive.
Donating your work to the archive makes it available to us for future activities, and will form part of an ongoing open access research & development resource library held at Workflow Studio in Brighton.
We know that many books may be prohibitavly expensive to donate, or the book may be a dummy copy, but we really appreciate the support – thankyou to all of you that have already donated work to us!
