Entries close soon for the inaugural Headon Momento Photobook Awards
12 February, 2013
Head On Photo Festival and Momento have joined forces to create the Head On Momento
Photobook Awards, the third prize in the prestigious Head On Award series. This new award celebrates the
presentation of photographs in printed book form and offers prizes valued at $25,000.
"Head On Photo Festival has had a long and successful relationship with Momento. Their continued support
of the Festival, from its small beginnings to now being the largest photo festival in Australia, has been
instrumental to its success," says Head On Photo Festival Director, Moshe Rosenzveig.
"With the increasing popularity of photo books as a photographic print option we decided to partner on a
Photobook Prize that will showcase and inspire excellent photographic book design."
Professional and enthusiast photographers can enter a PDF of their published or unpublished photobook
across four categories - Portrait, Landscape/Travel, Documentary/Photojournalism and Open - by following
the links at www.headon.com.au before Sunday 11pm (EST), 10 March. Entry to the Head On Portrait
Prize and Head Off Landscape Prize can also be made at the Head On website.
Experts from the photographic, design and media industries, including Paulina de Laveaux the Publishing
Manager of Thames & Hudson Australia, will judge the quality of the graphic design and narrative flow as
well as the quality of the photography in each work.
"Entries that tell a story through pictures will score the best," says Momento General Manager, Libby Jeffery.
"When judging photographic prints, the quality of the photography and composition within the frame is
considered. Photo books must also include excellent design outside-the-frame and across-the-page,
thoughtful sequencing of images or typography and text to enhance the photos and create a rich visual

The board of directors of both the AIPP & ACMP strongly believe that by working together using our combined energy, skill and resources we can help professional photographers who work in the business to business and commercial sectors Australia, operate successfully in these modern and challenging times. There is no doubt that the market for, and the deliverables provided by, commercial photographers has changed significantly in the last few years. In recognition of these changes the AIPP and ACMP understand that the old divisions which existed between these two organisations, if continued, will not serve the needs of the commercial photography community well.
