I am getting caught up on other book publishing news and I want to pass along two recent international book awards.
The Europena Publishers Award went to Klavdij Sluban, a French photographer, and the Award guarantees that his project ‘East to East’ will now be published in book form. So we look forward to seeing it probably sometime next year.
The second set of book awards occured at the FotoGrafia- Fotofestival Internazionale di Roma in May 2009. The Premio FotoGrafia Libro Award went to the best Italian book and the best International book, as reported by Melanie McWhorter, one of the book judges and staff at photo-eye. These two Premio FotoGrafia Libro Awards were for books that have been published.
Best Italian book: Ed Templeton’s Deformer, published by Damiani book
Best International book: Jim Goldberg’s Open See published by Steidl
Second place: Mariken Wessels Elisabeth – I want to eat which is self-published by Wessels
