DUMMY BOOK AWARD ARLES 2023

The winners

For the 54th edition of the festival, Les Rencontres de la photographie and the LUMA foundation are once again offering the LUMA Rencontres Dummy Book Award, a prize to help publish a book model. Initiated in 2015 and endowed with a production budget of €25,000, this award is open to professional photographers and artists using photography, upon proposal of a book model that has never been published. Special attention will be paid to experimental and innovative editorial forms.

This year, the jury awarded two prizes at the Théâtre Antique on July 6.
