Leica European Publishers Award for Photography: Deadline March 21

From the link on Dewi Lewis Publishing’s website:

The Leica European Publishers Award for Photography is a major initiative to encourage the publication of contemporary photography.

Open to photographers world-wide, the competition is a unique collaboration between seven European Publishers – Actes Sud (France), Apeiron (Greece), Dewi Lewis Publishing (Great Britain), Edition Braus (Germany), Lunwerg Editores (Spain), Mets & Schilt (The Netherlands) and Peliti Associati (Italy).

The competition requires the submission of a substantial, completed and unpublished photographic book project. The winning project is then published in book form simultaneously by each of the publishers in their own country resulting in perhaps the most extensive cultural collaboration currently existing in Europe.”

I encourage you to look at the work of previous winners on the site, which includes the first books by such artists as Bruce Gilden and Simon Norfolk, among many others.

Read the guidelines thoroughly, and if your body of work is ready for publication, apply by March 21st. You can download the application form from Dewi’s site.

NOTE: Publisher Dewi Lewis will be participating on a panel coordinated by Darius Himes on March 16 in Houston, as part of the FotoFest programming. For more information and to register for this one-day seminar on publishing photobooks today, click here.
