First PhotoBook

  • A book in which the dominant content is photography, featuring the work of one or more photographer/artist,* produced in physical form, and available for purchase or distributed free of charge, whether via trade distribution, print on demand, a gallery or online outlet, or otherwise. (“Virtual” or electronic books that exist only in digital form are not eligible for entry at this time.)
  • A book that is the first by the given photographer/artist is eligible for entry, whether a first self-published book, a first limited-edition book, a first gallery-published collection, a first book made available by print on demand, or a first book published by a publisher for release in the book trade. A first book published by an established publisher is eligible for entry even if the photographer/artist previously released a self-published book or a limited-edition book for distribution outside the trade. However, once a photographer/artist has had a book published by a mainstream publisher in the book trade, a subsequent book (whether self-published or not) is not eligible for entry
  • Books must be produced or published between September 1, 2016, and September 13, 2017. Books produced before September 13, 2017, but not due for release or publication until a later date in 2017, are also eligible.

PhotoBook of the Year

  • A book in which the dominant content is photography, whether authored by more than one photographer/artist* or authored by an editor, produced in physical form, and published in an edition of no less than one hundred copies.
  • Books must be produced or published between September 1, 2016, and September 13, 2017. Books produced before September 13, 2017, but not due for release or publication until a later date in 2017, are also eligible.
  • Entries for either award may only be submitted by the photographer/artist, the publisher, or a third party acting with the consent of the photographer/artist.

Photography Catalogue of the Year

  • An exhibition catalogue or museum publication in which the dominant content is photography. Catalogues can feature the work of one or more photographers/artists, should be produced in physical form, and available for purchase or distributed free of charge, whether via trade distribution, print on demand, a gallery or online outlet, or otherwise
  • Text-only publications are not eligible, however, catalogues can include extensive research, writing, and analysis—whether dedicated to the oeuvre of a single photographer, or an exploration of a collection based in photographic history and practice
  • Catalogues must be produced or published between September 1, 2016, and September 13, 2017. Catalogues produced before September 13, 2017, but not due for release or publication until a later date in 2017, are also eligible.

*Books by or featuring the work of more than one photographers/artists are eligible in all categories.

Juror information

The awards will be judged in two stages. An initial jury will meet in New York to select the shortlisted entries in both categories. The final winners will be decided by a separate jury that will meet in Paris immediately before Paris Photo begins. The initial jury will include representatives of both Paris Photo and Aperture Foundation, and the final jury will include neither.
Each award winner will be chosen from the juried shortlist, all of which will be exhibited at Paris Photo. The fall 2017 issue of The PhotoBook Review (published by Aperture Foundation) will feature all of the shortlisted books. Following their display during Paris Photo, an exhibition of the thirty shortlisted books will travel to Aperture Gallery in New York and may be exhibited at other venues.

Several research fellowships in the NY Historical Society. Deadline: Jan. 13, 2017

THE NEW-YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY, founded in 1804, holds a distinguished collection of books, manuscripts, photographs, graphic materials, decorative objects, historical artifacts, and works of art.

The Patricia D. Klingenstein Library at the New-York Historical Society is home to more than 350,000 books, three million manuscripts, and distinctive collections of maps, photographs, and prints, as well as ephemera and family papers documenting the history of the United States from a distinctly New York perspective. New-York Historical’s collections are particularly rich in material pertaining to the American Revolution and early Republic, the Civil War, and the Gilded Age. Significant holdings relate to Robert Livingston and the Livingston family, Rufus King, Horatio Gates, Albert Gallatin, Cadwallader Colden, Robert Fulton, Richard Varick, and many other notable individuals. Also well documented within the Library’s collections are major social movements in American history, especially abolitionism, temperance, and social welfare. The Library’s visual archives include some of the earliest photographs of New York, a significant collection of Civil War images, and the archives of major architectural firms of the later 19th century. Among the more than 1.6 million works comprising the Museum’s art collections are all 435 preparatory watercolors for John James Audubon’s Birds of America, a preeminent collection of Hudson River School landscapes; and an exceptional collection of decorative and fine arts spanning four centuries.

The New-York Historical Society offers a rich research environment that promotes an active intellectual community. Fellows are encouraged to explore the collections and take advantage of the full scope of the Library and Museum’s resources and to share their research during their tenure through informal talks and blog posts. Educational outreach and public programs further support New-York Historical’s intellectual mission to explore the richly layered political, cultural, and social history of New York and the nation, as well as the making and the meaning of history.

The New-York Historical Society offers several long- and short-term fellowships during the academic year. Designed to encourage and promote the use of the institution’s diverse collections of primary and secondary sources, the fellowships are open to scholars at various times during their academic careers.

The application deadline for all fellowships is January 13, 2017.

RU/VISUAL AIDS CURATORIAL RESIDENCY – DEADLINE: NOV. 17, 2016

REMINDER: RU & Visual AIDS co-sponsor Curatorial Residency – March 2017

A one-month residency, to take place in March 2017 in New York City, for a curator, art historian, or arts writer interested in the intersection of visual art and HIV/AIDS. Co-sponsored by Visual AIDS and Residency Unlimited for the fifth year running, the curatorial residency seeks to encourage the development of exhibitions, programs, and scholarship about HIV/AIDS and contemporary art.

The residency includes round-trip transportation to New York City, accommodations and $1000 stipend.

Residency Unlimited will provide the curator with customized administrative and network support, shared office space at 360 Court Street in Brooklyn and a venue for a public program (lecture/screening/discussion) defined in conjunction with RU and Visual AIDS. Concurrently, the resident curator will conduct research at Visual AIDS in the Archive Project and online Artists Registry. The Visual AIDS office is located in the Chelsea art district in New York City. The Archive and Registry at Visual AIDS holds over 20,000 images by approximately 750 artists living with HIV and those who have passed away from AIDS related complications. Studio visits with artists from the Archive Project are strongly encouraged. The resident curator is invited to create an online exhibition to be hosted by Visual AIDS (see Visual AIDS monthly Web Galleries at: http://www.visualaids.org/gallery).

The resident curator will be invited to produce a free public event co-hosted by RU and Visual AIDS. Panel discussions, film screenings, performances, or a lecture highlighting the curator’s use of Visual AIDS’ resources or a presentation of international cultural production around HIV/AIDS are examples of potential programs.

For information on past Visual AIDS curatorial residents, visit:

http://www.visualaids.org/projects/detail/curatorial-residency

International applicants are strongly encouraged to apply. English speaking and writing skills are required.

TO APPLY:

Please submit a C.V. and a Statement of Purpose (maximum 2 pages) outlining your goals for the residency, and any past or current projects that have led you to cultural investigations around HIV/AIDS.

Applications are due November 17, 2016. Applicants will be notified by December 14, 2016

The one-month residency must take place between March 1 and March 31, 2017

Smack Mellon Call for emerging curators. Deadline: Sept. 1, 2016

Proposals are accepted annually from Emerging Curators for the Emerging Artists Summer Exhibition. The Emerging Artists Summer Exhibition will be curated by a selected Emerging Curator and will be made up of Emerging Artists. An Emerging Curator is defined as an independent curator who is beginning their career as a curator. Proposal must show history of at least 3 prior curatorial projects successfully presented to a public audience.

The selected curator’s exhibition theme will be announced in the open call process for the emerging artists program. The theme should be relevant to political, social or environmental issues. Curators must select 50% of their artists from the pool of emerging artists. The exhibitions must include at least 60% women artists, as part of Smack Mellon’s mission to support women artists.

Smack Mellon provides curators a stipend and a budget for artists’ stipends. The curator is encouraged to stop by the gallery during gallery hours to look at the space in order to tailor their proposal to the space.

Smack Mellon can provide audio and visual equipment such as projectors and flat screen monitors as well as technical support for installing complex projects.

The curator should realize that we expect a hands-on approach at the gallery. The curator is expected to be in NYC to review all submissions. The curator is expected to be at the gallery throughout the installation and the curator and artists involved in the exhibition are responsible for the execution and installation of the artwork. The curator should clarify to all artists when invited to participate that they are responsible for delivering their work to the gallery, installing and de-installing their work. Smack Mellon does not have a full time staff of preparators. Smack Mellon will hire an installer for 2 days to help with general installation. Smack Mellon gallery staff can assist in installation of work requiring a lift or special mounting. Our gallery staff may also assist artists with installation of other complicated projects but will not be involved in helping the artist to build their work on site. Our technical staff will install all of the equipment (projectors, monitors etc.) belonging to Smack Mellon. It will be the artist’s responsibility to install and maintain any equipment that belongs to the artist.

Specifics about the installation of artwork and about the equipment that Smack Mellon is able to provide will be discussed after the initial proposal has been reviewed and accepted as a proposal under consideration.

Curators do not have to propose a completed show but must submit the following:

______________________

1. Documentation of past exhibitions
(Up to 20 still images and/or a maximum of 3 three-minute videos of past exhibitions.)

2. Resume
