Deadline: September 1, 2017
Entry fee: $10 for VABC Members, $25 for nonmembers
The fine print:
Entrants must hand-bind themselves the submitted book, a new binding around an existing text block. The text block is any core material that can be bound to become a book; the binding is whatever structure/process is used to hold the cover and text block together. No limitation on binding styles.
Upload your entry through the online registration system, including a 200-word narrative and at least one and not more than six photos.
Entries will be judged with application materials by an impartial expert on a combination of the following:
-excellence in craft
-creativity of concept
-suitability for the chosen text
The entry fee is $10 for members and $25 for nonmembers for each book submitted. You may submit more than one book.
