All professional photographers and artists using photography, of any age or nationality, are eligible to participate.
For the second consecutive year, in 2016 the Rencontres de la photographie is offering an award to fund the publication of a dummy book.
The award is open to all professional photographers and artists using photography who submit a previously unpublished dummy book. Experimental and innovative forms will receive special consideration.
Only one project may be submitted. The project must be as close as possible to the final version, both in its form and the materials used (type of paper, etc.), and technically feasible using traditional book production methods.
The award is endowed with a €25,000 production budget, including €3,000 for the author or authors, as the case may be, payable in advance. This amount is intended only for the production of the submitted project.
