Maine Media Workshops partners with Blurb again this year to sponsor the 2009 Photography.Book.Now competition.
Blurb’s international juried self-published book competition is a celebration of the most creative, most innovative, and finest photography books – and the people behind them. Now in its second year, Photography.Book.Now offers photographers of all stripes the opportunity to showcase their work to a world-renowned panel of judges, and take a shot at a $25,000 grand prize.
Competition categories include Fine Art, Editorial, and Commercial photography books. Along with the grand prize winner, there are and 1st and 2nd runners-up in each category. Maine Media sponsors the three People’s Choice Award.
An important part of Photography.Book.Now is bringing together the photographic community. There will be an awards celebration and meet-up in New York this Fall, where attendees will celebrate outstanding books together over food and drinks, and meet with some of best in the business. Photography.Book.Now will host similar events during the fall in San Francisco, Chicago, London, and Paris.
Book submissions are accepted through 12:00 pm PDT on July 16, 2009.
