Thank You to All Who Submitted Photobooks
After a successful first edition, the Unseen Dummy Award is back! The 2012 winner, Shinji Otani's 'The Country of the Rising Sun', was announced at Unseen 2012. The printed and published was presented at the opening of Books&Foam on Thursday 28 March. Read our interview with Shinji Otani here.

Unseen and Lecturis have designed a photobook dummy award to showcase the work of exceptional photographers from around the world and to give them a chance to realize and publish their photobook dummy. The Unseen Dummy Award will give the winning photographer an entry into the international photography industry.

The international jury will come together at Unseen to select one photobook dummy as the winner. The members of the jury include Jörg Colberg (writer, photographer and teacher), Hans Gremmen (graphic designer and publisher), Melinda Gibson (photographer), Paul van Mameren (director of Lecturis), and Shinji Otani (photographer and last years' winner). Click on the names to read an interview with each of the jury members about what they look for in photobooks.

The call for photobook dummies is now closed. Thank you to all who submitted photobooks.
