The Viewbook Photostory 2012 Competition

Viewbook is inviting all photographers worldwide to enter the 2012 edition of the Photostory photography competition.

The Viewbook Photostory is an international competition that focuses on the narrative aspects of the photographic art form. In 2009 and 2010, Photostory focused on the big picture. This year’s edition will concentrate on the theme “Small Stories”.

The winner in this competition will be awarded with a book of his/hers work made in collaboration with an acclaimed designer, plus will become part of a traveling exhibition.

Win a traveling exhibition and a book of your work made in collaboration with an acclaimed designer.

This year the focus will be on photographic series with a personal view, or stories from a “small” or intimate perspective. The theme is “Small Stories” and it’s open for interpretation, or as the organizers say:

The theme is “Small Stories,” and it would be fantastic if you could show us work that is focused on the micro instead of the macro. Think small.

The winner will receive a personalized award in the form of a book publication, a traveling exhibition kit, and exposure on a variety of channels.

The winner’s series will be crafted into a book by a renowned photography book designer, and will be printed on a specialized press. The publication will provide a different perspective and a new way to interact with the work. This will give it a new quality that can only be experienced while handling a physical object.
