Submissions Open

We are very excited to announce submissions are now open for our upcoming photobook show in Russia.

We invite people to submit books at any stage of production and distribution, from handmade prototypes and dummies, to one off, published and self published books. Check out our shows page to see previous editions.

I Book Show will exhibit about 80 photobooks in St. Petersburg over a long weekend in May 2017, showcasing a wide demographic of work currently being produced around the world.

Submit your photobook

As with our previous shows, we encourage people to donate their books to the Photobookshow archive which is held in Brighton, England. As part of the archive your books will be documented on our website, and available for people to view outside of shows.

We also sometimes hold archive shows like the ones in Malmo, Sweden, and Kiev, Ukraine. So even if your work is not shown this time it could still be exhibited at a future show.

If you want to submit more than one book that’s great. Please fill out a submission form for each book but only pay the £10 submission fee once.

We look forward to seeing your work! Here is some more info:
