Beth Dow “In the Garden” 2008 Photography.Book.Now Grand Prize Winner
The 2009 Photography.Book.Now self-publishing book competition is now open, with more information here. The lead book juriest for this will Darius Himes, co-founder of Radius Books, who was a judge in the 2008 competition. The grand prize will be again, $25,000.00, which is probably why there were 2,000 entries in last years competition.
There are a number of important aspects of this competition, the first is the personal results of self-publishing your own work if you have not had a opportunity to complete this yet. The quality of the submission are very high, thus this competition should not be be taken too casually. There is the opportunity to participate in the shared photography book community, with the awards celebration and meet-ups that are on-going and will continue world-wide.
You will have until July 16th to complete your entry, and I wish you all the very best as you develop your book.
Regards, Douglas Stockdale
