Since 2015, the Rencontres d’Arles offers an award supporting the publication of a dummy book.
This prize, with a production budget of €25,000, is open to any new photographer or artist using photography, submitting a previously unpublished dummy book.

Special attention is paid to experimental and innovative publication forms.

The recipient of the 2019 edition of the award was Chow & Lin for The Povery Line.

The recipient of the 2018 edition of the award was Marina Gadonneix for Phénomènes. A special mention was given to the dummy book by Indré Urbonaité (State of Shame).

The recipients of the 2017 edition of the award were Olga Kravets, Maria Morina, Oksana Yushko and Anna Shpakova for Grozny: Nine Cities.

The recipients of the second edition of the award were Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber for their book You and Me. A special mention was given to the dummy book by Mathieu Asselin (Monsanto).

In 2015, the recipient was Yann Gross for his Jungle Book.

Last year, 146 publications from 36 countries were received.

An international jury will choose the winner.

The 2020 winner’s dummy book will be exhibited this autumn during Paris Photo at the headquarters of Kering, a main partner of the Rencontres d'Arles, in the chapel of the former Laennec hospital, 40 rue de Sèvres in Paris, from November 11 to 15.
