After a successful inaugural year, we are delighted to work with Here Press on publishing this year’s wining project.
The Award is open to all photographers and artists who are yet to publish a book (does not include self-published books) and are either studying or have graduated from a UK-based visual arts course within the last 5 years. Applicants do not have to be coming from an Art Photography course, any photography course is welcome. Applicants are not required to be living in the UK.
The winning project will be co-published by The Photographers’ Gallery and Here Press in 2016. Four runners-up will also be awarded £1000 each towards the realisation of their project.
Online submissions are open until 31 October under www.barturphotobookaward.org.uk
Applicants can submit a PDF or up to 20 images and a project synopsis (max 800 words) online. Final designs or layouts for a book are not necessary as part of the application unless desired. A panel of judges will select the winner and runners-up to be announced in December 2015.
