Lindsay Ellary, Chin Up Baby, Smile / 2023 Booooooom Art & Photo Book Award Winner
Booooooom Art & Photo Book Award 2024
Deadline Jun 7, 2024

Calling all artists and photographers! It’s the return of one of our most popular open calls, the Booooooom Art & Photo Book Award! Once again we are teaming up with our friends over at Bookmobile to offer the chance to have your work published as a standalone book for free! We will be selecting 6 projects to turn into books – each by a different artist, illustrator, or photographer – at zero cost to the individual.

If you have a specific series or a cohesive selection of work that you want to turn into a book, we want to see it. We are looking for finished work as opposed to works-in-progress or otherwise incomplete projects. This is open to all our members, if you’re not a member you can learn more about becoming one here.

These beautiful books seen above were created by last year’s winners: Sander Coers, Miya Turnbull, Ashley A. Ross, Jeremy Starn, Barbara Gabrielle (and Benny Zenga’s is still in progress). You can also see the previous year’s winners here.

Independently owned and based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Bookmobile began as a design and typesetting production house in 1982, then started offering print services in 1996, and distribution services in 2004. When your books come to Bookmobile, they get the benefit of forty-one years of know-how.

We know it’s a dream for many of you to publish a book of your own work and this is a chance to do it without all the costs. These will be your books, not ours, so each of you will have full control of the design and layout. We will happily provide assistance/guidance if you need it, but the book design will ultimately be your responsibility.

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.
  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Witty Books

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)

  • George Byrne: Synthetica
    Jun 13 – Jul 14, 2024
    Show Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA

    Show Gallery is pleased to present Synthetica, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based Australian artist George Byrne. References to magical realism, modernism, theosophy, and AI combine to explore the tension between the natural and the artificial. The exhibition challenges preconceptions of reality in an increasingly digital age while paying homage to Byrne’s analog photo roots and influence from the new topographic photographers. (more…)
