Call for Photobooth Performances
If you want to participate in the next photobooth book, mail in four photobooth style photos with dialogue bubbles documenting a photobooth performance by November 30thm 2011 to: PhotoBooth Book, PO Box 1424, Jupiter, FL 33468  For quality control, no electronic submissions please - original photobooth or photobooth like photos only - no copies! No returns. Future exhibitions to be announced to participants. Be sure to use the prescribed format - photobooth  style image size and include dialog bubbles..

Steps for submission:
1. Take/make 4 photos of your photobooth performance.
2. Put this in an envelop - do not email
3. On a piece of paper draw dialogue bubbles for talk, think and/or holler (or you can collage from the ones provided here and also in the FB group). Make sure you indicate which bubble goes with each photo.
4. Clearly print your text in the bubble(s).
5. Add the paper to the envelop.
6. Mail envelop to PO Box 1424, Jupiter, Florida 33468 USA

To understand the format fully see a preview of book pages at the Lulu link given above allowing slight delay time in preview. (The prescribed format files are below and downloadable from here. If you do not have access to a photobooth you can use clear photos of quality in the format.) You can send in as many performances as you want but I can only guarantee space for one submission at this time.

Participants will be able to get a copy of the next book as a free PDF download or print copies at wholesale. Updates and announcements will be made on this blog.

Use this as a gauge for adding photos.
Add dialogue to bubbles either by hand print or type - just be very clear! You can use the below images pasted or hand drawn so I know which mood you intend, I will be adding text electronically during prepress work.
