    The Photocopy Club’s brand new exhibition project has now been announced, and this time we are giving you the chance to exhibit your work in both the UK and South Africa in October and November. All you need to do is make a collective with 3 or more people and together make a photographic work that is based on the theme of community. Once you have your project shot, you need to find a photocopier, Print your work any size from A4 - A1, in Black and white and post it to us at the address below.

    Have fun, experiment and show us communities that the world may not know of.  - The photocopy club 2014

    International Open Call for Submissions
    Deadline: 8 September 2014
    The Photocopy Club, in partnership with Brighton Photo Biennial and Joburg Photo, invite photographers of all ages and abilities to join them for a giant collective making to be exhibited during BPB14 and one month later, during Joburg Photo.
    This project will bring international photographers and local communities together, making photography in print affordable and accessible to people from all different walks of life.
    All Photocopy Club exhibitions are based on photographers submitting their work printed via the use of a black and white photocopier/xerox machine.
    For Photocopy Club exhibitions to be shown during BPB14 and Joburg Photo, photographers around the world are asked  to form collectives with their friends, family and peers and submit on the theme of community.
    Matt Martin form The photocopy club explains,
    ‘We want you to come up with a collective name and make individual or a group images that work around the theme of community. For example: Music, Religion, sport, art, sex, politics….. think about the city you live in and what communities live within it.’
    Zine Workshops and Exchange
    From the submissions, a handful of our favourite UK collectives will be invited to a group zine making workshop. Resulting zines will be exhibited in Johannesburg and swapped with another group of collectives working on communities in South Africa.
    Rules
    • Collectives must number between 3 and 10 members.
    • Submissions must be printed in black and white using a photocopier/xerox machine with a minimum paper size of  A4 (12x8in) .
    • All submissions must be signed, dated on the back and show the collective’s name on the front.
    • 2 copies of each submission must be made. One copy for BPB and other for Joburg Photo. These will then be separated and delivered to the exhibition spaces. 
    • All submissions must be sent via post or by hand to The Photocopy Club or Joburg Photo offices. No electronic submissions will be considered.
    • All image rights stay with the photographer but once submitted you consent to the work being exhibited and your images being used for press. All work sent will also be available for the public to purchase for a small donation, with the money made going towards the support of the zine workshops and a split zine of the joint exhibitions.
    • Any work not sold will go into the photocopy club archive and may be used at future photocopy club exhibition.

    photomonth is committed to the creative development of photography. The exhibitions present work of the highest possible standard, giving exposure to photographers from the world over as well as those that are locally based or come from other parts of the UK. A programme of special events creates interest and participation in photography and includes the photoblockphoto-openportfolio review, lectures, seminars, discussions, talks by artists, walks and workshops.

  15. The photocopy club BLOW UP will open at Doomed Gallery in London on the 3rd of July 2014. This exhibition will showcase everything from the archive (until we can’t fit any more on the walls) from between 2011 and 2014. All submissions that were not sold at previous exhibitions will be here and will be for sale, making great photography in print available to everyone. We want the bedroom walls of London and beyond covered in photocopy club submissions. The show will also be heavily documented for our up and coming book which we hope to have ready by the end of the year.
