Categories include Research, Creation, Bibliophilia, and First Publication. The Research category encompasses books that recover significant archives or present a new approach or reinterpretation of works by great masters of photography (theoretical essays on photography also compete in this section). In the Creation category, books compete whose authors present a personal work where the conceptual and narrative approach prevails. Bibliophilia highlights books for their original edition, whether for their special interest, beauty, and/or rarity of format and material of the publication. First Publication is the category where artists launching a book authored by them for the first time compete. Authors and publishers of all nationalities who published photography books between March 1, 2023, and March 1, 2024, are eligible to participate. Once the online registration is completed, the received form must be printed and sent, along with two copies of each publication in the competition, to the following address: Prize for the Best Photography Book of the Year C/ Verónica, 13 28014 Madrid Spain. The reception of books will remain open until April 26, 2024. All shipments made up until the closing date of the call for entries will be accepted. The participant will be responsible for the full shipping cost with delivery to the indicated address. A curatorial team composed of professionals from the publishing world will be responsible for selecting the finalist books, which will be exhibited during the months of the festival. The books selected for the exhibition will not be returned. Those not selected can be collected from the PHotoESPAÑA offices starting from the communication of the preselected books until May 13, 2024. Once this deadline has passed, the publications will be sent to libraries and cultural centers, where they will become part of their collections.
