Society of Bookbinders - International Bookbinding Competition 2021


The Society of Bookbinders are thrilled to announce the launch of the International Bookbinding Competition 2021. Since its introduction in 1999, the Competition has developed into one of the most successful regular exhibitions of the craft. Its success has been in the variety of work represented, with fine binding sitting happily alongside restoration and book arts. It is a truly international event, with the 2019 Competition attracting entries from twenty-one different countries.

This year there will be prizes awarded over five main categories: fine binding, book arts, case binding, restoration and historic binding. There will also be awards for craftsmanship, design, best newcomer and many more, with a total prize fund of over £6,500!

Deadline to complete your entry form - Friday 30th April 2021
