European Publishers Award. Deadline: Feb. 15, 2014

The European Publishers Award for Photography was established in 1994 and will celebrate its 21st year in 2014. Previous winners have included Bruce Gilden, Simon Norfolk, Jeff Mermelstein, Paolo Pellegrin, Jacob Aue Sobol, Ambroise Tézenas, Klavdij Sluban, Christophe Agou, Davide Monteleone and Alessandro Imbriaco.

The competition requires the submission of a substantial, completed and unpublished photographic book project.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 2013 winner will be published in five editions in five languages in the autumn of 2013.

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. Additionally, in recent years the winning photographer has had the opportunity to exhibit their work during the following Rencontres d’Arles.

The closing date for the 2014 Award is February 15th, 2014.

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 jury will meet in Barcelona in spring 2014. 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.

One thought on “European Publishers Award. Deadline: Feb. 15, 2014”

  1. The latest winner of the European Publishers Award for Photography – One Another by Alisa Resnik – is now available.

    One Another features images mainly taken at night in St Petersburg and Berlin. Leaden-coloured scenes, greasy spoon cafés, empty halls and old hotel rooms that seem to echo with traces of the past. And people’s faces…… hurried glances, small awkward gestures, hands searching for support, the signs of grief or desparation in the corner of an eye – people breaking through the glass of loneliness.

    For Resnik, photography is the way to stop a moment and look deeper into reality, to step past the often painful dichotomy between subject and the object: “You roam the world looking for the moments you can stop and turn into an act of perception, looking for a revelation, looking for a mirror.”

    Alisa Resnik (b. 1976 in St. Petersburg, Russia) moved to Berlin, Germany, in 1990. After studying Art History in Berlin and Bologna she began photographing in 2008. Her work has been exhibited in Rome, Milan, Madrid and at Les Rencontres d’Arles. She was also selected for the Photoespaña 2009 Descubrimientos and among the new talents at the Musée Suisse de l’appareil Photographique in Vevey.
