PHOTOGRAPHY BOOK NOW: DEADLINE July 14th
This new publication competition has a great roster of Judges, and a $25,000 first price. If you are interested in entering, create the book you would love to have produced (using BLURB’s free Booksmart software) and either digitally or in hard copy.
To me, there are two great benefits of entering.
First, it will cause you to think seriously about the book you want, to edit, sequence, think about captions, text, EVERYTHING related to the book you would love to have to showcase your work.
Second, your dream book will be seen by this group of Judges:
Darius Himes, Head Judge, Co-Founder, Radius Books, Santa Fe
Jen Bekman, Jen Bekman Gallery, NYC
Elisabeth Biondi, Visuals Editor, The New Yorker
Frish Brandt, Director and partner, Fraenkel Gallery
Charlotte Cotton, Curator and Head of Department, Photography. Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Stephen Gill, Photographer
Lesley A. Martin, Aperture Books
Alan E. Rapp, Senior editor of art, design and photography books at Chronicle Books
Kathy Ryan, Photography Director, The New York Times Magazine
Brian Ulrich, Photographer
Denise Wolff, Commissioning Editor for Photography, Phaidon Press
There will also be an educational component that lead juror Darius Himes is organizing called “The Photography.Book.Now International Salon and Symposium which includes a half-day program of panels and presentations exploring the modern photography book movement. You’ll hear working photographers talk about their books, hear industry practitioners discuss how to curate and design books, and learn how to market a successful book.”
If you have been thinking about a book of your work, now is the time…
