The Bar Tur Photobook Award

Open calls, Publications | 29 September 2014 - 30 October 2014

The Bar Tur Photobook Award is an exciting new partnership between The Photographers’ Gallery and entrepreneur and philanthropist Amnon Bar-Tur. This annual award will offer an emerging photographer the chance to publish their first book with The Photographers’ Gallery and Trolley Books in 2015.

The Award is open to all photographers and artists who have not yet published a book (self-published excepted) and are either studying or have graduated from a UK-based visual arts course within the last five years. Applicants are not required to be living in the UK.

Submissions will be judged by a panel of experts; Brett Rogers, Director, The Photographers’ Gallery; Amnon Bar Tur; David Chandler, writer and curator; Nadav Kander, photographer; Caroline Metcalfe, Photographic Director, Condé Nast Traveller Magazine; Professor Chris Wainwright, Head of Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges and Hannah Watson, Director, Trolley Books.

The winner will work with photography experts over the course of a year to produce his/her first book. In addition to the winner four runners-up – two undergraduates and two postgraduates – will also be awarded a financial contribution towards the realisation of their proposed photobook project.

This is a three-year initiative during which The Photographers’ Gallery will be collaborating with a different UK-based independent publisher each year.

This Award was established with the generous support of Amnon and Armon Bar-Tur and family in memory of late wife and mother, the British Artist Ann Lesley Bar-Tur (1947-1984).
