Blurb & PhotoIreland Festival Open Call: Photo Book Submissions now open.

Blurb and PhotoIreland are looking for 20 great contemporary photography books to exhibit during the festival.
This is a great opportunity to showcase your outstanding Blurb photography book at PhotoIreland, that this year has a special focus on photo books, celebrating its first Book & Magazine Fair. The fair will start the 15th of July with the opening of ‘Martin Parr’s Best Books of the Decade’, an exhibition offering Parr’s personal selection of the 30 most important publications. Blurb will offer bookmaking seminars, and the popular Carousel Slide Slam in conjunction with Foto8 and Harry Hardie.

The 20 selected Blurb books will be available for all to see at the fair.
After PhotoIreland, they will travel to Belfast Photo Festival’s opening weekend in 5-7 August.
