August 3rd & 4th, NYC: 4th Annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair

The Camera Club of New York
Fourth Annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair: The Americas
Saturday & Sunday, August 3-4, 2013
, 12:00-6:00 pm

“This year’s theme, The Americas, presents photo books and zines from North, South and Central America. The curators – Jade Berreau, Lindsey Castillo, Victoria Gondra and Erik van der Weijde – each have backgrounds in publishing, with close ties to artists from all over the Americas. They have curated a wide range of work that reflects the region’s great diversity in art and culture. As in past years, all proceeds from the sale of zines and photo books will go directly to the artists or small publishers.

On Saturday, August 3 at 3pm in the CCNY Studio, Tony White will discuss the impact of zines and artists’ publishing in the early 21st century in the United States. White will briefly draw attention to the impact by late 20th century democratic multiple-artists’ books in the USA, and to the paradigm shift in production/distribution opportunities created by the internet and print on demand. Connections to similar publishing practices in the Americas will be highlighted as well, drawing on the diversity and interconnectedness the internet has created for artists’ publishing today, whether in North, Central or South America.”

Deadline July 16th: Registration Now Open for Critical Mass 2012

Photolucida
Call for Entries: Critical Mass 2012
Deadline: Monday, July 16, 2012

“The aim of Critical Mass, and all Photolucida programming, is to provide participants with career-building opportunities and to promote the best emerging and mid-career artists working today.

Critical Mass is a program about exposure and community. The idea is simple—photographers (from anywhere) submit a 10 image portfolio for $75 ($90 for international submissions). This work is then pre-screened by a committee of approximately 20 great jurors. From those votes, the 200 top Finalists are determined. These 200 Finalists then pay an additional submission fee ($200) and their work goes on to a jury of approximately 200 of the world’s best photography professionals who have agreed to view and vote on the Finalists’ work. Using these votes, at least one photographer is chosen to receive a book award and once the monograph is published, everyone who enters and juries will receive a copy of the book.
