Photo Book Festival and Opportunities

The deadline for the Dummy Awards  at the International Photobook Awards has been extended to the 26th April. All books need to be received at the office by the 28th.

They are calling for the submission of so far unpublished photobooks. All entered dummies will be shown electronically during the festival. The 50 best books will be exhibited. From these 50 titles the winners of the Dummy Award will be chosen. The 1st prize is a complete book production through our partner seltmann+soehne and a presentation in European Photography. The 2nd and 3rd prizes are valuable book productions by our partner Blurb. Special prizes are photobook dummy reviews by schaden.com / White Press.
