The fast-growing interest in photobooks worldwide has paved a new way for showcasing and appreciating photography in Asia. The SIPF Open Call for Photobooks hopes to foster greater creative exchange and bring fresh inspiration to the local scene, by assembling a collection of the most creative photobooks from all over the world in one exhibition.

The Open Call for Photobooks will be judged by an international panel of jury. Winners and finalists will be announced at the opening ceremony of the 6th Singapore International Photography Festival. The inaugural Photobooks exhibition will showcase the works of winners and finalists, curated by THEBOOKSHOW. The exhibition will be featured as a highlight of the SIPF before travelling to other cities in Asia to connect to more audiences.
