Landskrona Foto Dummy Award arrangerades för första gången 2015 och innebär att en jurybedömd fotograf får sin Fotoboksdummy publicerad via stöd av Landskrona Foto.

Boken kommer att bli tryckt, designad och distrubierad. Dessutom får fotografen själv ett antal böcker att disponera över.

Vinnaren av Dummy Awards kommer att utses av en tillsatt jury, under sommaren 2018, varpå denne kommer att bjudas till Landskrona under Foto Festivalen. Som en del av årets festivalprogram kommer vinnaren att göra en publik presentation av sitt fotoboksprojekt.

Utlysningen kommer att ske under våren 2018. Mer information kommer inom kort.



LANDSKRONA FOTO DUMMY AWARD 2017 in collaboration with Breadfield

Do you want to make a photo book?

Have you made a dummy* of your project?
Now you have a chance to have it published.

By entering for the Photo Book Day´s Open Book Dummy Review you have the chance to win the Landskrona Foto Dummy Award.

During Photo Book Day on September 9th there will be an Open Book Dummy Review. Here four photographers will be able to present their ongoing book projects to an audience and a panel. Each photographer will first make a short presentation of his or her project, which will be followed by a conversation about the idea.
The winner, the photographer with the most interesting idea for a photo book, will then be selected by an international jury.

The winner will be revealed/presented on stage as one of the closing events of the Photo Book Day.
Landskrona Foto Dummy Award enables the winner to have his or her book project published by Breadfield Press and Landskrona Foto during 2018.
The prize includes all expenses for book production such as design, printing and distribution. The photographer will also receive a large number of books to dispose over and sell. The book will be printed in 700 copies.
The selected dummies will also be on display as an exhibition in the Tyghuset foyer during the days of the festival.
The event costs 300 Sek (approx 30 Euro) to enter. This fee will go solely to aid the final four selected travel costs. Send a completed application together with your dummy in PDF format before April 15, 2017.

In collaboration with Landskrona Foto.
