The First Book Award is a photography publishing prize open to photographers who have not previously
had a book published by a third party publishing house (this does not include self-published print on demand projects).
The award was established in 2012 to support emerging photographers. The call for submissions emphasises a predilection for projects conceived in book form: works that find a voice through the book.
The award is not an open submission. Each year, a diverse array of international nominators are asked to recommend suitable projects.
We are grateful for the support of:
