An important announcement to our community,
Long before Photo Collective existed as an organisation we were making photobooks, entering and engaging with the Australia and New Zealand Photobook Awards and being supported by the good folks at Momento Pro.
As our awards program developed, Momento Pro joined us as an official sponsor for both the Australian Photography Awards and our Stories initiative. We are so proud to work alongside an organisation who shares our values in opening meaningful dialogues within the Australian photography industry and helping bring Australian photography to an international stage.
As of today, Photo Collective will be facilitating the Australian Photobook Award. Although the book award will fall under the Photo Collective banner, the future of this initiative will be carried out hand-in-hand with the team at Momento Pro. We couldn’t imagine continuing this legacy without them.
It is our hope that this next chapter in the Photobook Awards will allow for greater opportunity and reach for not only our entrants but our whole community, and allow more people to share in our love for photobooks.
We can’t wait to see what these new opportunities bring to our community.
What are the Australian Photobook Awards?
The Australian Photobook Award celebrates excellence, originality, functionality and design in local photo book creation. The Momento Pro print prizes are designed to help students and artists produce publications and progress their photographic career. In 2021 the Photobook and Student categories will be complemented by a new ‘Book Concept’ award category.
The next entry period runs from 1 November 2021 to 31 January 2022 and more details will be available soon.
