This year marks the first Annual Southeast Guild of Book Workers Member’s Showcase. The Member’s Showcase is an online opportunity for any members of the SEGBW to show their work in an effort to facilitate growth, collaboration, communication, and promote excellence in the craft and art of the book within the Southeast Chapter and the Guild of Book Workers.
This exhibition will be online only and will be hosted on the SEGBW Blog indefinitely as a way to make the work of our chapter accessible to even our most remote members and to the book community throughout the world.
The artists and craftspeople of the Southeast Chapter are encouraged to submit at least one example of the work they produce. Each artist may contribute a maximum of three images of their choosing that they feel best characterizes the type of work they do.
Because this is an online exhibition, it is important that the submitted photos be of high quality.
All SEGBW members may contribute work in the following categories:
Artists Books, Paper Arts, Bookbinding, Hand Papermaking, Historical Models, Fine Bindings, Innovative Conservation Treatments, Handmade Boxes, Collaborative Projects, Conceptual Artist's Books, Altered Books, and Any Experimental or Other Book Related Medium.
Each member may email three images (no more than 150 dpi each) to firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to the three images, each member must send a brief 50 to 100 word bio/statement about who they are and their work and interests within the book arts.

Deadline for Entry: January 31, 2017
