Polycopies is an annual photobook festival that promotes independent publishing - books, multiples, paper objects and experimental practices.
Coinciding with Paris-Photo, Polycopies transforms the Concorde-Atlantique boat in the French capital into a large ephemeral bookshop fully dedicated to photography books. In 2023, the event will bring over eighty international publishers and booksellers from more than twenty countries, who will be hosting events, round tables, signings, professional meetings, and portfolio reviews for five days.
The book fair has become a meeting place for many amateurs, collectors, authors and publishers who like to share and confront their ideas on photography practices, understand the stakes of publishing, exchange their discoveries and favourite books, or submit dummies and see new projects being initiated. Since 2022, Polycopies seeks to promote and support photographers by providing one or more grants each year, intended to assist photographers in producing a book or contributing financially to a photography project that will result in a publication.
