“This annual summer group exhibition is the only open call we hold each year and is dedicated to featuring a wide range of photographic artworks and fine art photography and artists’ books from 40-50 fine art photographers. UnBound! generates opportunities and exposure beyond the traditional group or juried show by providing a collection opportunity for artists. 

During the exhibition, an annual gala event is held to raise funds, which allows Candela to purchase select works from the exhibition. Works acquired by the event proceeds are then added to the gallery’s Candela Collection. The mission of the Candela Collection is to support photographers through the purchase of original photographic work and to actively pursue opportunities to donate said works to notable permanent collections. The Candela Collection currently includes 62 photographic artworks and 11 fine art photography books.

Our hope is that photographers will support our UnBound! exhibition with their active participation just as we hope to support their work and careers in return. All accepted artists will have their artwork featured at Candela Gallery, a gallery space in the downtown arts district of Richmond, Virginia.

The award was established in 2012 to support emerging photographers. The call for submissions emphasises a predilection for projects conceived in book form: works that find a voice through the book.

From 2012 to 2018, the award was not an open submission; each year, a diverse array of international nominators were asked to recommend suitable projects.

Submissions for the First Book Award 2019 are not limited to nominated projects and the award is open to all emerging artists who wish to submit a coherent book project. Please see the Submission Guidelines page for further details.

Previous winners include: Anne Sophie Merryman (2012), Paul Salveson (2013), Joanna Piotrowska (2014), Ciarán Óg Arnold (2015), Sofia Borges (2016) and Emmanuelle Andrianjafy (2017).

GUIDELINES

The First Book Award is a photography prize for photographers and artists who have not previously had their work published by a third party publishing house. This does not include self-published books or print-on-demand projects.

  • Submissions must consist of coherent book projects and not portfolios of images in book form.
  • Any text within the book must be supplied with an English translation.
  • All submissions must be received as paper book dummies. Digital submissions in the form of PDFs, ebooks or apps will not be considered.
  • All submissions must either be unpublished or self-published book projects. Books that have already been published by a third party publishing house will not be considered.
