Photobook Award ends 30 June 2024

Deadline: 30 June 2024. As part of its 34th edition, Encontros da Imagem – International Photography and Visual Arts Festival, is promoting the Open Call – Photobook Award EI2024.

Aware of the fundamental role the photobook has played in recent years in the presentation of photographic narratives, the development of creative processes, construction and experimentation with materials and techniques, Encontros da Imagem has sought to promote, since 2014, independent authors and projects through a competition aimed at highlighting and rewarding the best photobooks of the year, with a diverse jury with in-depth knowledge of photography and the publishing sector, which will result in a collective exhibition to be presented at the festival alongside the rest of its programme, as well as a cash prize.


All the books sent and submitted will be presented at a collective exhibition, which will take place between 20 September and 3 November 2024 in Braga, Portugal, as part of the 34th edition of the festival, as well as being presented and announced on the festival’s website and its various communication channels.

The jury will evaluate all the books and select a winning project which will be awarded with a cash prize of €1,000.00, and if it deems it appropriate, honorable mentions.
