Terms of participation

All proposals will be judged on their aesthetically and conceptually association between the pictures and how they communicate with each other in the printed book.

A dummy is an unfinished book, hence imperfections are accepted.

* Dummy = original idea and unfinished first edition of the book, so that the creator / publisher understands the format / size / nature of the final book. As a draft of the idea it warrants defects and is open to change and improvement.

The selected books from the finalists will be exhibited during Photometria International Photography Festival and then form a mobile library that will travel to Chania (LEFKI), Valencia, Thessaloniki and other festivals that photometria collaborates with

The submitted work can be individual or collective.

Only one dummy per participant can be submitted and it must be original and not published or exhibited as a whole in a major photography event previously.
