For the past nine years, Kassel in Germany has been home to the most important annual forum on the world of photography books, the Fotobookfestival Kassel*. The festival is usually a long weekend full of artist lectures, book exhibitions, booksellers and publishers showcasing their most recent offerings, portfolio reviews and awards for the best photobooks from the previous year. For photographers hoping to find people interested in their yet-to-be-discovered book projects, the main attraction of the Fotobookfestival Kassel is its photobook dummy competition for the best unpublished photobook mock-up. The winner of the First Prize will be produced and published by our cooperation partner Verlag Kettler, Germany. Second and Third Prize is a book production voucher given by our partner k-books, who specializes in high-quality book productions in small quantities.
The 9th Fotobookfestival Kassel will take place partly in Istanbul, at the ISTANBUL PHOTOBOOK FESTIVAL from 28 – 30 April, in Moscow at the MOSCOW PHOTOBOOK FESTIVAL from 12 – 21 May, in Lodz at the FOTOFESTIWAL LODZ from 1 June – 3 June with a special Photobook Night on 3rd June, and everywhere our shortlisted 2017 Dummies will be exhibited. The next Fotobookfestival in Kassel will be a big 10-year anniversary festival from 30 May to 3 June 2018. Save the date!
