The Marco Bastianelli 2018 Prize is dedicated to the best photographic book published in Italy in 2017. For fourteen years, an attentive observatory of the world of photographic publishing, it is one of the most coveted awards for those who make photography books in Italy and for those who want to be know from insiders.
To participate, just send your book by May 10, 2018, following the directions of the regulation published in the notes.
Aimed at Italian photographers, the award will give recognition to two categories of books: the work of an Italian author; self-produced work by an Italian author (self-publishing or artist's book).
Established in memory of Marco Bastianelli and his interest in photographic publishing to which diffusion and knowledge has contributed for many years with his articles, at the fourteenth edition of the prize there will be, as always, a very authoritative jury.
The award ceremony will take place in Rome on Wednesday 30 May, at the CIVITA Association, located in Piazza Venezia. Also from 11.30 to 14.00 you can meet the authors awarded, during an aperitif open to everyone on the terrace of the Association with wine tasting kindly offered by the farm Casale del Giglio.
The winning works and a selection of the books received go to constitute a traveling fund that will be available to the students of photography schools and the books will be presented in spaces intended to host photography projects. Furthermore, a wide selection of the books received will be exhibited to the public in the "room of photography books", a space dedicated to photographic publishing of the Castelnuovo Fotografia festival. The prize is € 600.00 per section.
