The Rencontres d’Arles Book awards were created in order to support the swift growth in the publishing of photography books and to help them reach a broader public. There are now three categories of books: Authors’ Books award, Historical Books award and Photo-text Books award. The Fondation Jan Michalski pour l’Écriture et la Littérature backs and encourages the Photo-Text Award, which celebrates the relationship between words and images. Each award comes with a €6,000 prize and singles out the best photography books published between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019. A jury of photography book experts announces the winners’ names during opening week. Each book is received in two copies: one is deposited at the library of the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d’Arles, the other put on public display throughout the festival period.
Main partner: Fondation Jan Michalski pour l’Écriture et la Littérature.
