The submission deadline for both prizes is 30 September 2020.

Photobook Award 2020

The theme of the photobook award is Changing realities ‒ what lies behind the horizon? Human societies are constantly changing. The horizon is new for every generation, for every human. Where there were once borders, today there are none. Where people used to move freely, they are now constrained by private property, surveillance and effects of climate change. How do people shape their lives among constant change?
Photobook projects should be broadly connected to the topic and try to uncover the changing realities of our world in many different areas.
The final date to receive the books is the 1st of September 2020
