It’s our 6th annual Photobook Fair and this year we are going digital and online. A big part of 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 our virtual stall on Saturday 17 October. This is a great opportunity to present your work to an international audience.
The Online Photobook Fair will be held on Saturday 17 October 2020, 11.00am to 4.30pm, and is free to attend. There will be virtual 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 uploaded on Saturday 17 October and available for people to buy up for a month after the Online Photobook Fair. You must have a pdf of your photobook or zine so we can make it available for people to browse as they would in person.
If your publication is selected, you will only need to pay a one-off donation of £10. In return we will sell your book online and 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 customers and covering postage and packaging costs.
