European Publishers Award for Photography 2016
Now in its 23nd year, the 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 five European Publishers – Actes Sud (France), Blume (Spain), Dewi Lewis Publishing (Great Britain), Kehrer Verlag (Germany) 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 The competition requires the submission of a substantial, completed and unpublished photographic book project.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 one of the most extensive cultural collaborations currently existing in Europe. Actes Sud will be project leader 2015.
The jury will meet in spring 2016. The Jury consists of five publishers, namely Benoît Rivero (Actes Sud), Leopoldo Blume (Blume), Dewi Lewis and Caroline Warhurst (Dewi Lewis Publishing), Mario Peliti (Peliti Associati), Klaus Kehrer (Kehrer Verlag) and a guest juror.
The formal presentation of the Award will be held at the Rencontres D’Arles during the opening week in July 2016 at the Théâtre antique.
