Deadline for submissions: 18 February 2019
FOTO WIEN invites photographers, artists and publishers to submit photo books published within the last two years (2017–2019) for the festival’s Photo Book exhibition and Photo Book Award 2019. Be it handmade book dummies, outstanding exhibition catalogues, self-published publications, books from established publishing houses, or zines – the best photo books of the past two years will be presented at the FOTO WIEN festival headquarters. Outstanding publications will be selected from among all entries, and will be on display at the FOTO WIEN festival headquarters from 21 March to 6 April 2019.
An international jury will select three winners from among the photo books shown in the exhibition. The first place will be awarded a prize money of 1,500 euros, the second and third place 750 euros each. The prize is sponsored by Galerie OstLicht, Vienna, and the books will be added to OstLicht’s publicly accessible photo book collection after the exhibition.
