[BKARTS] Call for Entries - Photo+Book

A show inspired by the "SPOD" book discussion on this list a few months ago!

Photo+Book: A Juried Exhibition of Self-Published On-Demand Photography Books
March 6-28, 2008
23 Sandy Gallery, Portland, Oregon

WHAT IS PHOTO+BOOK? - Photographers have been witness to a dizzying
array of groundbreaking innovations in recent years. One of those
exciting innovations is the emergence of "self-published, on demand"
book printing services. You know.... Blurb, Lulu, iPhoto, MyPublisher
and all those other proliferating providers as well. These books allow
photographers to present their photographs in a high-quality, low-cost
and professional-looking book. With the excellent quality of on-demand
printers in the marketplace today, you can publish one copy just for
you or publish lots of copies and market them under your own imprint.
They also make great book dummies to show to the real publishers.

ELIGIBILITY - Photo+Book is open to photographers both in the United
States and abroad who have made a photography book via any on-demand
printing service. Entrants may submit up to three different titles of
any size, format, or style. Hard cover, soft cover, case-wraps,
landscape, portrait, square, color, black and white. There is a $25
entry fee and entries are due at the gallery by January 24, 2008.

JUROR - This exhibition will be juried by Christopher Rauschenberg—a
photographer who has had 83 solo shows in six countries over the last
35 years. His most recent book, Paris Changing: Revisiting Eugene
Atget's Paris, was published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2007.
His work is in hundreds of museums, private and corporate collections
and he is the co-founder of Blue Sky Gallery and Photolucida. Learn
more about his work at www.christopherrauschenberg.com. Co-juried by
Laura Russell, owner of 23 Sandy Gallery.

BEST OF SHOW AWARDS - Four artists submitting books will be selected
for Best of Show Awards. Those four photographers will exhibit four
framed photographs each from their winning books on the gallery walls
during the book exhibition.


Thank you for your interest in Photo+Book! We look forward to seeing your work.
