This is already the 12th edition of the all-Poland competition organised this year by Fotofestiwal, Bookoff Artistic Bookstore and Służew Culture Centre. On 9 June, we will grant the Main Krzysiek Makowski Award and will announce the winning project in the PDF Dummy Award. The jury will also select at least ten publications and five book designs that will be exhibited during Fotofestiwal.
In the Photographic Publication of the Year contest, jury will award those publications that have the potential to inspire others and that present bold concepts, refined graphics, excellent print quality, exceptional photographs and are well-designed. Experts in book creation and photography have been invited to join the jury.
PDF Book dummy contest has been invented for authors that have a design ready but have not found funding for the publication of their books yet. We want to award those projects that have the potential to become fully-fledged books and compete with other publications on the market. The winning dummy will be printed in a few copies, which will help the author look for the publisher, financing for printing, or participate in international competitions for photo book dummies. In this part of the competition, we have invited people involved with designing, editing, and printing books to the jury.
