More than a hundred photographers from Russia took part in the competition, submitting photobooks and photozines to the jury. The jury of the competition includes photo editors, publishers, curators, art historians, teachers, designers, photographers, artists: Elena Ishchenko, curator of the Typography Center for Contemporary Art; art critic and historian of photography Irina Tolkacheva; Ekaterina Bogachevskaya, head of the Academy of Photography; photocritic Olga Bubich; Vladimir Semyonov, editor-in-chief of the Print Gallery; Margo Ovcharenko, photographer, teacher at Rodchenko Art school. Traditionally, the participants of the contest present novelties and bestsellers of the Russian author’s photobook. These are works in different genres and price ranges: from classics to contemporary art, from an artist’s book, a unique handmade edition, to author’s photobooks, zines and prints.
