MACK are pleased to announce the First Book Award 2017. Established with Wilson Centre for Photography and Kraszna-Kraus Foundation, the award has seen the publication of 11 previously unpublished photographers over the past 5 years and has supported the launch of the careers of these emerging artists.
A panel of judges including Michael Mack and Polly Fleury from the Wilson Centre for Photography, as well as guest judges Diane Dufour, Director of Le Bal, Paris and Shoair Mavlian, Curator at Tate Modern, London, will together assess all submitted dummies, shortlisting 10. From the shortlist, a single project will be chosen as the winner. In 2017 the award involves not only publication of the winner by MACK but also a solo exhibition at PhotoLondon 2017.
