FotoBookFestival - Dummy Award 2014

The FotoBookFestival Kassel have announced the 48 shortlisted works for the Photobook Dummy Award 2014. The Festival invited photographers to present their so-far unpublished photobooks to an international public and to eminent experts.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 production their partner, k-books, Germany, and will be reported on 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 shortlisted photobooks were chosen by Tamara Berghmans (Fotomuseum Antwerpen), Angel Luis Gonzales Fernandez (PhotoIreland Dublin), Sebastian Hau (Le Bal Books Paris), Jeffrey Ladd (Photographer Cologne), Dieter Neubert (Fotobookfestival Kassel), Markus Schaden (ThePhotoBookMuseum Cologne) and Stephanie von Spreter (Fotogalleriet Oslo).
