New ICP Award for First Photo Book Now Calling for Entries

The International Center of Photography (ICP) and London-based book publisher GOST books has announced a new prize to promote the publication of a first book by an unpublished photographer.

The winner of the ICP/GOST First Book Award will have their first photo book designed, edited, printed and published under the ICP/GOST imprint. GOST will handle distribution and provide the opportunity to exhibit the work at a venue to be announced. The winner will also receive a portion of personal copies of the book from the first print run. The deadline for entries is September 2.

Judges for the prize have not yet been announced.

The ICP/GOST partnership is the latest to sponsor a first book award competition.

The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation, which offers awards for photography books, teams with Mack Books to present its First Book Award. The 2019 Mack First Book Award will be announced tomorrow.

Center for Documentary Studies at Duke and the Honickman Foundation have been hosting the biennial CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography since 2000.

The fee to submit a book project to the ICP/Gost First Book Award is $35 (or $25 if you enter before May 31). Considering how many photographers are paying book publishers to publish their books, that’s a bargain.
