After the great success of the previous edition this year FotoGrafia - Festival Internazionale di Roma presents the second edition of the Prix-FotoGrafia Book dedicated to Italian photographic publishing — publishers independent and not, publishing groups or collective — for the works published during this calendar year.
The goal of Prix FotoGrafia-Book is to identify and reward the best editorial photography. The jury composed of five experts from the world of contemporary photography will judge the work. This year's confirmed judges will be Melanie McWhorter, Eric Kessel, Buzz Spector, and Benedetta Cestelli Guidi.
Books will only be accepted if published in Italy between March 1, 2008 and March 1, 2009.
The first winner will receive a photo exhibition during the 2010 edition of FotoGrafia. The winner will be announced during the inaugural day of FotoGrafia 09.
Send two copies of the book, one for the library of the Festival and one for the display and judging, by May 15, 2009 to
Viale di Porta Ardeatina, 55 - 00154 Roma
The website is for the 2008 festival. For more information on this year's call for work, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for receipt of book in Rome is May 15, 2009.
