Open Call for Submissions: Publications

Open Call for Submissions: Publications

Posted on: 13th September 2016


Street Level Photoworks is a leading photography arts organisation that provides artists and the public with a range of opportunities to make and engage with photography.  We are also a premier outlet to buy photographic prints and publications, with a small but specialist retail space dedicated to promoting the very best in emerging photographic talent from across the country.

With that in mind we are looking to take stock of new and exciting artist books, publications and zines to promote and sell through our bookshop

Chosen publications will also be featured in a showcase event early next year.  With many thousands of visitors a year to our gallery this is an excellent opportunity to bring your work to wider audience drawn from all over the world.


The application process is free of course and you can submit up to 3 titles for inclusion.  To apply please email a full copy PDF or a selection of sample pages of your books in JPEG format (including an image of the front cover) to:

You should also include in your submission a separate PDF information pack including your name, address and contact telephone number, retail price and up to a 100-word description of each publication. Please also indicate how many copies you are able to supply - if successful our minimum order would be 4 copies. Publications that are complete and retail ready are preferred though we are happy to accept 'in progress' publications that are near completion.

If you wish to be considered for the publications showcase event in 2017 please also indicate this on your application - in which case if successful one copy will be retained by Street Level for our archive and promotion purposes.

Physical Copies

Physical copies of publications can be sent for consideration with the above information pack included but please note we cannot be responsible for returning physical copies of publications and cannot take responsibility for their loss or damage. If you wish to send a physical copy please address it to: John Farrell, Street Level Photoworks. Trongate 103,  Glasgow G1 5HD. Physical copies can also be delivered to the gallery in person and left at the front desk.

Publications are accepted on a sale or return basis for an initial 6 months, subject to review. Any sales are subject to 30% commission and payments from sales are made approx. every 6 months.
