PHOTOBOOK, an annual competition, was open to photographers in the United States and abroad who have self-published a photobook. There are growing options available for self-publishing a book such as on-demand (blurb, lulu, magcloud, etc.); small run offset or web printing/publishing firms, binderies. If they have been hand-made/bound, they must be available in multiples of at least 25.
Entrants were able to submit up to three different titles that are self-published photobooks of any size, format, or style.
The photobooks were juried by their PDFs. They were judged on the basis of: book design including page layouts, text, cover; strength of the photography; and emotional impact of the overall book. All judging was at the complete discretion of the gallery/museum and all decisions of the gallery/museum were final.
All submissions had to be original works of authorship created by the photographer who submitted the submission.
