This year the 12th Annual Self-Published Photobook Show had one call for entry which will result in a live exhibition at Davis Orton Gallery plus a live exhibition at the Griffin. There will be an Online Catalog as well. The Griffin Museum exhibition will be live in the Atelier Gallery. The Griffin will link the exhibition to its Photography Artist Book Initiative on-line gallery as well.
The jurors are Karen Davis and Paula Tognarelli. Karen Davis is the Curator/Co-owner of the Davis Orton Gallery. Paula Tognarelli is the Executive Director & Curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography.
PHOTOBOOK, an annual competition, was open to photographers in the United States and abroad who have self-published a photobook. There are growing options available for self-publishing a book such as on-demand (blurb, lulu, magcloud, etc.); small run offset or web printing/publishing firms, binderies. If they have been hand-made/bound, they must be available in multiples of at least 25.
Entrants were able to submit up to three different titles that are self-published photobooks of any size, format, or style.
The photobooks were juried by their PDFs. They were judged on the basis of: book design including page layouts, text, cover; strength of the photography; and emotional impact of the overall book. All judging was at the complete discretion of the gallery/museum and all decisions of the gallery/museum were final.
All submissions had to be original works of authorship created by the photographer who submitted the submission.
