By the Books: 2nd Juried Photobook Exhibition

The Vermont Center for Photography is pleased to announce the call for entries for our 2nd Juried Photographic Book Exhibition “By the Books. This juried exhibition will showcase a wide variety of outstanding photographic books from artists internationally for the month of August 2017. This exhibition is a unique opportunity to “break out of the frame” and share your photographic work in an alternative format! All submitted books will be reviewed by our juror who will be solely responsible for selecting the books to be on display.

Books should be primarily photographic in nature, though other mediums are allowed (i.e. – a book featuring photographs as well as illustrations…). Submissions should be books of your own work or a collaborative/multiple-artist book of which you are involved in. There is no age restriction for artists and the call is open internationally. Books may be handmade, self-published, digitally-printed, hand-printed, commercially published – or anything in between! We welcome your creative interpretation.

The exhibition juror announcement will be posted shortly – stay tuned!
