We are happy to announce the second edition of the SELF PUBLISH RIGA contest! We are eager to receive unpublished photobooks and handcrafted book dummies from all over the world. Submitting your book to the contest is free of charge. The winner will be awarded a free place at the International Summer School of Photography 2016 for a workshop of their choice, while the shortlisted dummies will be part of the Riga Photomonth SELF PUBLISH RIGA exhibition in May/June 2016. Best works will be also featured on YET Magazine and FK Magazine, but top ten will be included in a special online feature. The deadline for submissions is 30 April.
The dummy contest will be judged by an international jury: Erik Kessels (founding partner and creative director of KesselsKramer, curator, publisher and photography collector, NL), Gordon MacDonald (co-director of GOST Books, UK), Hester Keijser (curator, co-manager of The Independent Photo Book blog, NL), Vincent Marcilhacy (founder and director of Eyes Magazine, FR), Tom Mrazauskas (photobook designer, DE/LT) and Arnis Balčus (editor of FK Magazine, programme manager of Riga Photomonth, LV).
