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and London-based book publisher GOST books has announced a new prize to promote the publication of a first book by an unpublished photographer.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.
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.
