We are pleased to invite you to join the RTI team for three days of thinking, discussing, and making in Make A Photobook:Dublin. Taking place over the course of three days, participants and the RTI team will travel together on a photobook making adventure, exploring each stage of the bookmaking process along the way!

During the workshop participants will learn the language of the book form, how to read images, make meaningful decisions and build a book that is rooted in a carefully considered concept. Participants will work collectively and individually on their books with guidance from the RTI team each step of the way. The six main stages of the bookmaking process will be covered: editing, sequencing, layout, design, printing and binding.

The workshop format is intense and fast-paced, yet highly productive. In this hands-on approach to photobook making participants will arrive with a collection of images and leave with a hand-crafted dummy photobook that is conceptually and physically resolved.

To submit please send a selection of images from a body of work along with a project description to hello@readthatimage.org.

Submission requirements:
-Short description of the body of work (max 200 words)
-10 – 20 images
-Image format: JPEG, 72dpi, 1800px on the long side

Submission Deadline: Sunday 17th July 6pm
Dates: 22nd – 24th July
Times: 10am – 5pm
Price: €325 (includes all printing and binding materials)
Location: RTI HQ, Old Distillery Building, Allingham Street, Dublin 8
