As part of the 33rd edition of Encontros da Imagem – International Photography and Visual Arts festival, the open call for the Photobook Award EI 2023 is now open. This competition is juried by editors, publishers and other professionals in the publishing industry.

Since 2014, the festival has strove to be a privileged channel for photobook dissemination and promotion, carrying out the Photobook Award 2023, inviting all interested artists to apply for the prize with their photobook.

An international jury will select 30 finalists for a collective exhibition to present in Braga, Portugal, between the 15th of September and the 28th of October, during the 33rd edition of the festival.

Among the 30 finalists, one cash prize of 1.000€ will be awarded to the winner.
