From the 2013 winner, Between the Shell by Paul Salveson.

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 is not an open submission. Each year, a diverse array of international nominators are asked to recommend suitable projects. The winning entry is published by MACK and the National Media Museum.
