About the Award

In October 2015 entries will be invited for the 2016 European Publishers Award for Photography. Please check this site for further announcements.

Established in 1994, previous winners have included Bruce Gilden, Simon Norfolk, Jeff Mermelstein, Paolo Pellegrin, Jacob Aue Sobol, Ambroise Tézenas, Klavdij Sluban, Christophe Agou, Davide Monteleone, Alessandro Imbriaco and Kirill Golovchenko.

The competition requires the submission of a substantial, completed and unpublished photographic book project.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. The 2014 winner was published earlier this year in five editions and in five languages.

For several previous winners the Award book has been their first publication and has proved to be of significant benefit in the development of their careers. 

The closing date for the 2016 Award will be announced in October 2015.
