Paris Photo and Aperture Foundation have joined forces to celebrate the book’s contribution to the evolving narrative of photography by launching the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards. Two categories have been created:
– First Photobook Prize
– Photobook of the Year Prize.
Entries will be accepted from July 15 through September 10, 2012.
A shortlist of thirty titles will be profiled in The PhotoBook Review, will be exhibited at Paris Photo at the Grand Palais and at Aperture Gallery in New York, and will tour to other venues to be determined.
The award winners will be announced, at Paris Photo, November 14-18, 2012.
