Call for Submissions

Have a photo project that you’d like to turn into a book? Soft Grain Books is now accepting submissions for lens-based photo book projects. We specialize in long-form documentary photography and are looking for submissions that tell a story of a place or people from start to finish. Successful projects will have between 30-80 photos and a 250-word description that explains the meaning and impact of the project. Please only submit projects that have been completed, or are in the final stages.

We spend a lot of time deliberating over every submission, but we receive a high volume of projects and may not be able to get back to everyone.

Using the form below please include a Google Drive or Dropbox link to a folder containing:

  1. A minimum of 20 photos from your project with proper names, and in the right order
  2. A brief introduction
  3. A brief summary of the project (max 250 words)
  4. A link to your portfolio and/or Instagram

Note: please do not use password-protected Google Drive folders. Mark the folders as ‘anyone with the link can view.’ If you have any questions, use this form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
