The BOOK AWARDS 2020

Call for participation from September 1 to 26

AUTHOR BOOK AWARD / HISTORICAL BOOK AWARD / PHOTO TEXT BOOK AWARD

The 50th edition of the Rencontres d’Arles will take place from July 1 to September 22, 2019.

Created 50 years ago, at the same time as the festival, the Book Awards nowadays grant three categories of books, thereby contributing to the extraordinary development of photography publishing and to its wide distribution. Since 2015, the Fondation Jan Michalski pour l’Ecriture et la Littérature is the main partner of the Book Awards.

The Author Book Award rewards the best author project for a contemporary photography work. It is endowed with 6,000 euros.

The Historical Book Award rewards the best documented book on photography or about a photographer. It can either be a thematic or monographic book. It is endowed with 6,000 euros.

The Photo Text Book Award rewards the best book mixing images and texts, whether it is through the imbrication of the text in the image, the preponderant place of the writing within a model or a text supporting the photographic idea. It is endowed with 6,000 euros.

Main partner of the Book Awards: Fondation Jan Michalski pour l’Écriture et la Littérature.
