**WORKSHOP UPDATE** We are please to announce that MACK First Book Award winner, Ciarán Óg Arnold, will be joining us as a guest lecturer for the first day of the workshop.


Join the RTI team for three days of thinking, discussing and photobook-making in our very first Make a Photobook workshop of 2017! Taking place in Avenue Road Studio, participants will explore each stage of the bookmaking process and create their own photobook dummies.

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 throughout each stage of the bookmaking process.

The workshop format is intense, fast-paced, hands-on and highly productive. Participants will arrive with a collection of images and not only leave with a hand-crafted dummy book, but also the knowledge and understanding required to develop it into a fully-fledged photobook!

To submit please send a selection of images from a body of work along with a brief project description via the submission form below. For any additional queries drop us a line here! Please note, once notified, selected participants will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of €70.


Submission requirements:

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

Submission deadline: Monday 27th March 6pm
