Now you have a chance to have it published.
By entering for the Photo Book Day´s Open Book Dummy Review you have the chance to win the Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award.

During Photo Book Day on August 20th there will be an Open Book Dummy Review. Here four photographers will be able to present their ongoing book projects to an audience and a panel. Each photographer will first make a short presentation of his or her project, which will be followed by a conversation about the idea.
The winner, the photographer with the most interesting idea for a photo book, will then be selected by an international jury.

The winner will be revealed/presented on stage as one of the closing events of Photo Book Day.
Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award enables the winner to have his or her book project published by Breadfield Press and Landskrona Foto during 2016/2017.
The prize includes all expenses for book production such as design, printing and distribution. The photographer will also receive a large number of books to dispose over and sell. The book will be printed in 500 copies.
The selected dummies will also be on display as an exhibition in the Theater foyer during the days of the festival.
The event costs 30 Euros to enter. This fee will go solely to aid the final four selected travel costs. Send a completed application together with your dummy in PDF format before May 10th, 2016.

*You can also enter a book that has been self-published, digitally published or produced by print-on-demand, e.g. blurb. You may not enter a book that has an ISBN or one that that has been on sale.

Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award 2015 was awarded to:

YOU WOULD BE EARTH by Meral Güler (USA) and Dan Porter (UK).

The jury’s citation
You Would Be Earth is a story unanchored in time and space. So difficult to grasp, define and classify. It is enticing yet elusive. Meral Güler and Dan Porter are awarded this prize for their ability to awaken the unknown within us.

The jury’s honourable mention went to Marco Frauchiger (CH) for the book M13.

Jury 2015
The 2015 jury consisted of Per Lindström (Landskrona Foto), Jenny Lindhe (Breadfield), Silvia Loddo (osservatorio fotografico), Nick McLean (Éditions du LIC) and Veronique Bourgoin (artist).

There was a big interest in the Awards and we received 112 Dummies from all over the world. The quality was very high throughout and it was challenging for the jury to select only four projects.
