Photobook Week Aarhus Dummy Award

In 2018, Photobook Week Aarhus held their first Photobook Dummy Award. This is an international competition for the best unpublished photobook mockups of the year. An eminent jury from all over the world selected the best 18 dummies initially exhibited at Aarhus Photobook Week, and further international venues. This July, we are delighted to host the nominees, finalists and the winning dummies at PhotoIreland Festival! The dummies showcase the state of the art in the field of photography on a global scale.

The winning book will be published by PWA in collaboration with Kvadrat and the Reflektor platform, and distributed by Idea Books, Amsterdam, in a media partnership with European Photography.

The first PWA Dummy Award has been kindly supported by Kvadrat.

Photobook Week Aarhus is an annual open forum around the Photobook. Organised by Galleri Image & Aarhus School of Architecture. The 2019 edition takes place 3-6 October.
