We are delighted to announce the First Book Award 2018.
Established with Wilson Centre for Photography and Kraszna-Kraus Foundation and now in its 7th year, the award has seen the publication of 13 previously unpublished photographers over the past 6 years and has supported the launch of the careers of these emerging artists.
As in 2017 the award involves not only publication of the winner by MACK but also a solo exhibition at
Photo London 2018.
The First Book Award is a photography publishing prize for photographers and artists who have not previously had a book published by a third party publishing house. This does not include self-published titles or print on demand projects produced using online software platforms.
This is not an open submission. A diverse array of international nominators have been asked to recommend suitable projects.
All submissions must be received as paper book dummies. Digital submissions in the form of PDFs, ebooks or apps will not be considered.
Submissions must consist of coherent book projects and not portfolios of images in book form. Any text within the book must be supplied with an English translation.
Submissions are to arrive between 22 January - 23 February 2018 at our London address. Submissions received before or after these dates will not be considered for the prize.
Please indicate the name of your nominator and include your current email address, contact details and return address as part of your submission.
