Unseen and Lecturis will continue their collaboration and join forces once again to showcase the work of exceptional photographers and designers from around the world and to give them a chance to realise and publish their photobook dummy. The Unseen Dummy Award will give the winning photographer an entry into the international photography industry. An esteemed international jury will come together at Unseen 2015 to select one photobook dummy as the winner. We will announce the jury shortly.

The winning photobook will be published by Lecturis in editions varying between 500 and 1,000 copies, depending on the book specifications.
