Fotobookfestival Kassel has launched the 2020 edition of the Kassel Dummy Award, inviting all photographers worldwide to submit their unpublished photobook mock-ups for the chance to win exhibition and publishing opportunities in addition to monetary prizes.

In the first round of judging, 50 books will be shortlisted by an independent jury and this selection will be showcased at several international photography events across both Europe and Asia. From these 50 titles, three winners will be chosen by a second panel during Photo 2020, to be held in Melbourne, Australia throughout May this year. The winning book will be produced and published by Fotobookfestival Kassel's new cooperative partner MAS, the leading Turkish photobook printing and binding house from Istanbul. Second and Third Prize winners will each get a production grant worth 2,000 and 1,000 respectively for future projects.
