Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize 2008

Deadline: 30 June, 2008 (RECEIVE)

The Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize
Bank Street Arts
Sheffield UK
16 October to 6 November, 2008

The Sheffield Artist’s Book prize and exhibition is open to makers of artists’ books in any format and from anywhere in the world. No definition is being given of what constitutes an artist’s book beyond clarifying that the prize is not concerned with books about art or artists, but books as art.
The Sheffield Artist’s Book Prize is organized and hosted by Bank Street Arts in Sheffield. The exhibition is being staged as part of the Off The Shelf festival, presenting a different slant on the possibilities and realisations of the book format and as a contrast in ‘editorial scale’ to what is on offer elsewhere during the festival.

The SABP is open to artists/makers living and working anywhere in the world. Artists may submit one entry only. In the case of joint authorship, each author may submit a second work of individual authorship. Each entry must be the original work of the entrant and the date of completion must be clearly stated on the application form.

There is no entry fee.

Bank Street Arts will exercise reasonable care of works entered in the SAB Prize but will not accept responsibility for loss or damage, caused while works are in its keeping or in transit. Insurance remains the responsibility of the entrant at all times.

All entries will be acknowledged but only by e-mail.

All decisions regarding the exhibition and prize will be at the sole discretion of Bank Street Arts.

BSA will award at least one prize of £150 in cash.
