It’s our 7th annual Photobook Fair and this year we are going hybrid with a digital and in-person event. A big part the Photobook Fair is supporting, promoting, and selling self-published photobooks by photographers and artists.
We are looking for self-published and/or handmade photobooks, and photography zines to sell on a dedicated self-publisher stall at the gallery and through our online photo bookshop on Saturday 9 October during our annual Photobook Fair.
The Photobook Fair will be held on Saturday 9 October 2021, 11.00am to 4.30pm, and is free to attend. At the gallery there will be book stalls with leading photographic international publishers and booksellers, as well as a programme of live talks and events throughout the day.
If selected your photobook or zine will be part of a dedicated self-publishers stall on Saturday 9 October and available for people to buy for up to a month after the Photobook Fair. We will also add your book to our online photo Bookshop for people to purchase who cannot visit the gallery. You must have a pdf of your photobook or zine so we can make it available for people to browse on the online bookshop.
If your publication is selected, you will only need to pay a one-off donation of £10. In return we will sell your book through our online bookshop and at the gallery on your behalf. We will take no other commission and all sales will go to you. You will be responsible for posting your publication to us and covering return postage and packaging costs.
