Harvey Milk Photo Center Photo Book Open Call 2023

Bay Area Photobook Collection The Harvey Milk Photo Center is developing a collection of photobooks from Bay Area artists within the David Johnson Reference Library and invites artists and publishers from the Bay Area to submit their books for consideration.

The selected books will be displayed in the David Johnson Reference Library at the Harvey Milk Photo Center in San Francisco. In addition, the books will be featured on our social media and will go into the permanent collection at the Center. Five books will be selected per cycle and will be judged by a committee from the Center.

Our aim is to promote and showcase a wide variety of photobooks. We are interested in photobooks independently or commercially published, including handmade, self-published, book dummies, zines, limited-edition publications, and other printed matters. Books that feature the work of more than one artist are also eligible for submission.

1. Your artist statement and a short description of the book including number of pages, approximate number of photos, dimensions, and materials
