OPEN CALL for the 1st ViennaPhotoBookReview                                     

This year, we are very proud to announce that the 1st ViennaPhotoBookReview will take place one day before the festival starts, on Friday, June 13, 2014.

The Review

Publishers, gallery owners, curators, critics, and collectors representing small, mid-sized, and major venues from all over Europe, will gather in Vienna to review unpublished photo books. 30 photographers will be selected, who will then be given the opportunity to show their photobook dummies to 15 national and international reviewers.

Our goal is to offer talented photographers from around the world a forum to discuss their books with a wide range of photography experts, thereby producing a lively dialogue between the aspiring artists and the experts from various prestigious institutions.

Photographers will have one-on-one meetings with the reviewers. Each review session will last 20 minutes and we will limit the number of participants to assure that everyone receives six reviews each. It is a great way to network. Numerous photographers have walked away with opportunities to publish, exhibit, and sell their work after attending such reviews.

ViennaPhotoBookAward

In addition to the primary reviews, we will organize two sessions of open reviews, the first session will only be open to the reviewers who will be selecting the winner of the 1st ViennaPhotoBookReview. All photographers booked for the review are nominees. The second open review will be open to the public. During the open reviews, the photographers will be able to engage in personal exchanges, talk about the presentations in greater detail, and have the opportunity to sell previously published books and small limited edition prints.

Saturday evening, the winner of the ViennaPhotoBookAward will be presented. The 1st prize is a book publication by AnzenbergerEdition (covers production costs of Euro 5000,-).

Level of work expected at the reviews

We strive to keep the level of work of participants high, but recent graduates and non-professionals are also welcome.

Reviewers

Gerry Badger (curator, author, photographer, London), Horacio Fernandez (curator, Madrid), Irène Attinger (Library of the Musée Européene de la Photographie, Paris) Klaus Kehrer (Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg), Rainer Iglar (Fotohof, Salzburg), Hannes Wanderer (peperoni books, Berlin), Lia Wolf (bookshop Lia Wolf, Vienna), Dominique Kempers (bookshop Walther Koenig, Vienna), Calin Kruse (dieNacht publishing, Leipzig), Regina Maria Anzenberger (AnzenbergerEdition, Vienna), Michael Kollmann (photobook curator, OstLicht gallery, Vienna), more reviewers to be announced soon.
