Boards.ie Photobook launch & Photowalk- all welcome

Every year, the users from the photography forum on Boards.ie stick their heads and hands together to organize the annual Boards Photobook. The entire project is conducted online and is organized by volunteers from the forum and I have a photo in this year’s book.

The book showcases some of the finest photography work from both amateurs and professionals and will make a great Christmas present; as for each book sold, a charitable donation will be made to Santa Strike Force.

Book Launch- everyone invited
Boards Photo Book launches at the Dublin Camera Gallery on Camden Street at 8pm on December 1st 2012.
Dublin Camera Club have once again been so very kind to offer their gallery space for free in order to support the project. Many of the contributors and users of the photography forum will meet each other there. Remarkably, it will probably be the first time many of them will have met face to face – as all work behind the book happens entirely on the forum, which is an amazing feat!

We herewith extend an invitation and warm welcome to all interested in attending the book launch, the more the merrier. We hope to make the book a successful venture to ensure that Santa Strike Force can keep providing their fantastic service to institutions that, in these budgetary times, so much rely on donations from the public.

How can you buy the photobook?
The publication will be made available for purchase to the general public by Shakespeare Photobooks, a Waterford based company who have been selected for a third time for the printing process. After the book launch, copies of the book will be available for purchase directly from Shakespeare Photobooks.

Print Auction
A Print Auction of photos in the book will commence on the 2nd December and run for approximately 2 weeks – visit http://pix.ie/boardsbook for more details.

For any further inquiries, you can contact Tracy O’Brien and the team behind the book on boardsbook{at}gmail.com
