Kassel Photobook Festival – Dummy Book Award

Filed under: Photo Book NEWS — Doug Stockdale @ 9:12 pm

The 4th annual Kassel Photobook Festival is again sponsoring their 2011 Dummy Book Award.

From the Festival:  Enter your unpublished photobook for our Dummy Award 2011 now and win a complete book production.
The inaugural Dummy Award 2010 was one of the highlights of the last festival. From a total of 489 registrations and 431 submitted dummies, 56 books were chosen for the exhibition and competition.

Win a complete photobook production

Unpublished photobooks of any kind are admissible. This includes handmade artist books as well as digitally created editions. A jury made up of internationally renowned members will select the 3 best books. The winning book will once again be produced and published by our publishing and printing partner seltmann+söhne. This work will also be portrayed in the magazine European Photography. The 2nd and 3rd prizes will be sponsored by our partner blurb: The 2nd prize is books produced by blurb to the value of 500 Euros, the 3rd prize books to the value of 300 Euros. Both prizes include publication on blurbs »bluberati blog« (http://blog.blurb.com), »staff picks« (book presentations on the blurb bookstore website) and free entry to the blurb »Photo Book Now« 2011 competition. 3 works which catch the attention of our jury due to their outstanding photographic excellence but don’t fulfil the specific book design criteria will be rewarded with photobook dummy reviews by schaden.com / White Press.

A major criterion for the prize selection is the successful merging of excellent photographic work with the special design elements of the book medium. To prepare for our annual Dummy Award we strongly recommend participation in one of the festival workshops that focus on the design and production of photobooks. One of the goals of the Dummy Award is to raise the quality of the photographic book.
