The categories for the APS Photo Book Awards will be “Individual” and “Camera Club”.
Entries in the Individual category are open to any entrant who is a member of APS and/or an 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.
Camera Club Entries
The Camera Club category represents a new initiative for the APS Photo Book Awards in 2022. The category is open to all Australian camera clubs, with entries created as the result of a collaborative photo book project by club members. Again, the subject matter is unrestricted. All submissions will be welcome, and in particular projects that reflect a specific theme or storyline.
This category has been introduced with the intention of encouraging camera club members to actively participate in the planning, preparation and production of a high-quality photo book as part of a collaborative club project. For those camera club members who have never produced a personal photo book, and who may feel they lack the skills or experience to do so, a club photo book project could provide an invaluable learning experience.
Given this focus, club entries will need to be able to demonstrate that they have been produced through a collaborative effort by club members. To this end clubs will be asked, as part of the entry requirements, to include a Project Statement explaining the collaborative processes by which their entry has been produced.
Our three expert judges for the APS Photobook Awards 2022 will be Lisa Kurtz, Pia Jessen and co-founder of Momento Pro Libby Jeffery.
