Fotobook Kassel Dummy Award 2014

The Fotobookfestival Kassel invited photographers to present their so-far unpublished photobooks to an international public and to eminent experts. The best 48 books were selected by a pre-jury and will be exhibited at international photo events in Athens, Cologne, Dublin, Madrid, Milano, Oslo, Paris, Rome, Paraty and Sao Paulo. From these 48 titles, 3 winners will be chosen by an international jury of experts at the PhotoBookMuseum Cologne on Saturday, 23. August. The winner of the First Prize will be given the opportunity to realize the dummy as a ‘real’ book in cooperation with the festival’s production partner, k-books. The winner will be featured in the magazine European Photography. The First Prize also includes, apart from the book production, the presentation of the photobook-work during the next Fotobookfestival in Kassel in 2015. The Second Prize is a book production voucher valued at €500; the Third Prize is a voucher valued at €300 given by k-books. The exhibition at The Library Project offers the visitor the chance to browse the 48 books shortlisted.
