Following its huge success in 2013, the 2nd annual ViennaPhotoBookFestival will take place on June 14 and 15, 2014. With publishers from Eastern Europe and Russia participating, as well as schools and university photography classes that deal with the photo book medium, this is proving to be one of the most innovative photo book festivals in Europe.
This year, we are very proud to announce that the
1st ViennaPhotoBookReview will take place one day before the festival starts, on Friday, June 13, 2014.
Publishers, gallery owners, curators, critics, and collectors representing small, mid-sized, and major venues from all over Europe, will gather in Vienna to review unpublished photobooks. 30 photographers will be selected, who will then be given the opportunity to show their photobook dummies to 15 national and international reviewers.
The winner of the ViennaPhotoBookAward will be announced at the ViennaPhotoBookFestival on Saturday evening. The 1st prize is a book publication by AnzenbergerEdition (covers production costs of Euro 5000,-).
