Open Category Entries
Entries in the Open category are open to any entrant who is a member of APS and/or an Australian camera club, and to group entries prepared by members of any Australian camera club. The subject matter is unrestricted, with the author free to choose any theme, subject or topic.
Judging criteria will include excellence and fitness for purpose in photography; selection and sequencing of images; design, layout and typography; and originality of concept and design. The images in the book should provide an engaging visual narrative and should work together to deliver an overall visual impact that is “greater than the sum of the parts”. Text supporting the visual narrative may be included but is not a compulsory element.
Travel Category Entries
The Travel category is designed to encourage APS and camera club members to prepare and enter photo books that capture their travel stories.
The category is open to any individual entrant who is a member of APS or an Australian camera club. The subject matter should relate in some way to travel, for example a photo-journal of a particular journey, or a photo essay depicting the landscapes, people or lifestyles of a particular country or region.
Our three expert judges for the APS Photobook Awards 2023 will be advertised closer to the opening date.
Entry requirements will be advised HERE when entries open on 1 July 2023.
