MELBOURNE & PHOTOBOOKS
UPDATE Dec. 2013: The Reading Room is relocating and currently closed.
New address will be posted when available.
The Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive now has a lovely light-filled reading room in Prahran, Melbourne open to the public! Amongst their great collection of books are several by the Chinese photographer Zhang Xiao who was part of Excerpt's special issue Common Ground. It is well worth a visit just to enjoy these but there are so many great titles that you will want to stay there as long as possible.
The photobook archive is also running a photobook competition that has free entry open to current students and graduates since 2010. Submissions due 13.12.13

The Queensland Centre for Photography in partnership with Edmund Pearce Gallery, Melbourne also has submissions open for Youngblood Editions, which is an incredible publishing opportunity for Australian photomedia artists with 5 years or less of exhibition history. The selected artist will receive a publication and exhibitions at both QCP & Edmund Pearce. Submissions due 1.11.13
