VU, centre de diffusion et de production de la photographie

VU is an artist-run centre whose mission is to promote and support research and creation in the field of photography by working with artists and contributing to the dissemination of and reflection on their work.


It is in this context that we at VU are launching our annual call for book proposals, with the goal of supporting publishing projects within the fine arts photo community. We are seeking proposals both for the layout workshop Assemblages, and for two artistic support grants. While programming is not the main goal of this open call, the selection committee also occasionally draws from these proposals to select projects for VU’s regular publishing programme.


This call is open to artists from across Québec who are interested in the book form as a creative form. Proposed projects should have photography as their primary focus, and be previously unpublished.
