Nordic Dummy Award Photobook Exhibition Opens

The Nordic Dummy Award has been presented annually since 2012. The competition, which is overseen by the Oslo Fotogalleriet, invites photographers working in or associated with the Nordic countries to submit prototypes of their work in the form of a “photobook dummy”. Nominated books are then exhibited widely throughout the Nordics with the winning entry published by German fine-art and contemporary photography publisher, Kehrer Verlag.

We are thrilled to announce the shortlisted books will be on show at the Reykjavik Museum of Photography from 16th-26th March with the prize being awarded for the first time in Iceland on the 21st March at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography. Associated lectures on the awards will take place on the same day at the museum.

The Reykjavik Museum of Photography is honoured to be taking part in the Nordic Dummy Award touring exhibition. The presentation of these works highlights the growing number of photography books now published here in Iceland.
