We are currently accepting submissions from photographers for our Gomma Books 2017 Catalogue.

We are looking to sign
two new photographers for the production of an offset printed, hardcover photo book. In an edition of 750 copies and to be distributed and sold worldwide.

We're looking for projects of quality, that are fresh, powerful, unique and daring.

Please only send complete body of works that is ready to go to print. Please do not send ongoing projects.

We are open to publish emerging and unpublished photographers, however, please remember that photobooks are very expensive to produce, so please be very critical about your own work.

To stand as a book, a photographic series must fulfill various requirements.
These are just a few questions that you should be asking to yourself:
  • Would I buy this book if it was published?
  • Hasn't this sort of story already been told or published?
  • What am I trying to tell, and did I succeed in that?
  • Does my work look very similar to someone else' s?
  • Is it really complete, or does it still need more imagery and further editing?
  • Is my work original?
This last question is probably the most important of them all, "is your work original?"
If your answer is yes, then we warmly invite you to submit.

Whether your application will be successful or not, we will send to every submitter a detailed reply of our response. Average response time since application is 60 days.

Please note that Gomma Books Ltd do not ask authors to contribute financially to the production of the book.

If you consider submitting please do not wait the last day's deadline to submit.
Please note you can either upload a single PDF file or JPGs images.
