Maribor Photobook Award 2020

Maribor photobook award 2020


We would kindly like to invite you to the third edition of the Maribor photobook award. The award will be accompanied by an exhibition of selected photobooks from the call and will coincide with the exhibition “Borders”.

The theme of the photo book award is Changing realities ‒ what lies behind the horizon?

Human societies are constantly changing. The horizon is new for every generation, for every human. This is reflected clearly in our physical environment. Where there were once borders, today there are none. Where people used to move freely, they are now constrained by private property, surveillance and effects of climate change. How do people shape their lives among constant change? How do we make sense of new realities? How do we co-shape the future? We are looking for photobooks that are broadly connected to the topic and try to uncover the changing realities of our world in many different areas.

Eligible are books published after the 1st of January 2018.


The winner will be awarded with a 4000 EUR prize money ‒ no strings attached. Also 2 runner up prizes of 500 EUR will be awarded.


All books published after the 1st of January 2018
