Amsterdam-based Viewbook Photostory is calling for entries â€“ documentary and conceptual photos â€“ for inclusion in their Photostory 2009 book. Itâ€™s open to all photographers around the world.
The first prize winners will receive international publications and lifelong subscriptions worth about $12,000. The best photo series get published in the Viewbook PhotoStory 2009 book.
The photo essays will be judged by the public and an international jury consisting of Marcel Feil, curator of FOAM museum, Lauren Heinz (Editor Foto8), Alison Zavos (editor Featureshoot.com) and other industry professionals.
â€œWith this competition we aim to inspire each other with photographic creativity and generate international publicity for the most talented entrants,â€ says Peter Bas Mensink, publisher of GUP magazine and co-initiator of the competition.
