FELIFA FOLA INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2016


For Photobooks published in 2015 and 2016

BEST EDITORIAL WORK

 

A photobook is the fruit of an editorial team working together. The quality of the photographs themselves, the conceptionalization of the book project, the edition and sequence of the photographs, the graphic design, the pre-printing and printing processes, and the post-production are all crucial components of photobooks.
