Impressions Gallery


Call Out for Self Publishers

Thu, 24th Aug, 2017

Impressions Gallery, one of the UK’s leading independent contemporary photography galleries, is looking for self-published and / or handmade photobooks, and photography zines to sell at our Photobook Fair this November.

Last year we promoted 34 unique, self published titles to over 500 visitors at our Photobook Fair. Due to the great feedback from visitors and self-publishers we are once again calling for books and zines to sell at this year's event. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to promote your photobook to a wider audience.

The Photobook Fair will be held on Saturday 4 November 2017, 11.00am to 4.30pm and is a free event. There will be stalls with leading photographic publishers and booksellers, as well as a programme of talks and events throughout the day. The event will coincide with our exhibition No Man's Land: Women's Photography and the First World War.

How to apply

The application process is free. 

You can apply to sell one title at the Photobook Fair. This will be sold on a dedicated stall run by us. 

To apply email either a full copy or some sample pages of your books in PDF or JPEG format to This must include an image of the front cover. 

Your email submission must include your name, address, telephone number, email address, retail cost and a brief description of your publication (100 words max).

Closing date for applications is midday on Friday 29 September 2017.
