Silvershotz is publishing a book of portfolios of photography.
While there is a fee attached to this, given the quality of Silvershotz magazine and the likely exposure, it seems a reasonable and worthwhile opportunity.
Silvershotz is publishing a 210 page soft cover book to be released in October 2008. Building on the reputation and integrity of the Silvershotz magazine this book will be a serious item to purchase for all those interested in collecting and acquiring work from contemporary fine art photographers.
20,000 copies will be printed for distribution through our regular bookstores and newsstands in 11 countries. A further 2,000 will be available for purchase online or through our magazine and 500 copies will be provided free of charge to selected Auction houses, galleries, museums and collectors around the world. Every artist will be entitled to a double page spread showcasing their work to the key decision makers in the world.
Applications are invited by previous artists featured in this magazine, aspiring artists who want to be considered and artists nominated or represented by galleries and/or agencies.
There is NO application fee.
