by Unseen August 15 2014

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.
