We’re inviting photographers to put your images forward for our second publication, ROAD TRIP. Shutter Hub Editions, our new publishing house, launched in 2021, creating a collection of beautiful printed publications, featuring themed and solo books for people who love photography to collect.
There’s something wonderful about a road trip, whether it’s getting the best seat on the bus and going long distance to visit a relative, cycling cross-country up hill and down dale, or driving the back-roads on a journey of freedom and exploration through an unknown place, there’s a certain sense of nostalgia and adventure that can’t be matched – but it can be photographed!
We want to see your road trip images, whatever they are. Take us with you, show us how you travel, where you go, the open roads, the places you stop, the reasons you travel, and everything in-between… even the car snacks!
We want to bring photographers together in print to present a publication that people can hold in their hands and become part of this visual journey, transported through imagery.
What does ROAD TRIP mean to you?
We’re supporting this publication ourselves so that we can offer this opportunity at no cost to the photographers unless they wish to make a contribution. All we ask is that you send us your best work so we can make a significant publication to be pored over and treasured forever!
This will be a stunning book in its own right, but we also intend it to be a showcase for the photographers involved. We will promote it heavily across our networks, make it available to purchase in a variety of locations as well as directly from our online shop, and we will create a page on our website to allow people to connect directly with the photographers that are featured in the publication as we did with POETRY.
100 images will be selected for inclusion in the book. 6 images can be entered per photographer.
The publication will be perfect bound, portrait orientation 140gsm matte paper at 148 x 210mm with a 350gsm cover. The design, layout and editorial decisions will be at our discretion.
You don’t have to be a Shutter Hub member to take part, but if you’d like to find out about all the benefits of being a Shutter Hub member you can do so on our website: https://shutterhub.org.uk/about/what-we-do/
Deadline for entries: 24 February 2022 (5pm GMT)
