Since 2015, the Rencontres d’Arles offers an award supporting the publication of a dummy book. This prize, with a production budget of €25,000, is open to any new photographer or artist using photography, submitting a previously unpublished dummy book. Special attention is paid to experimental and innovative publication forms. The recipient of the 2018 edition of the award was Marina Gadonneix for Phénomènes, and a special mention was given to the dummy book by Indré Urbonaité (State of Shame). In 2017, Olga Kravets, Maria Morina, Oksana Yushko and Anna Shpakova received the award for Grozny: Nine Cities. In 2016, the recipients were Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber for their book You and Me. A special mention was given to the dummy book by Mathieu Asselin (Monsanto). In 2018, 195 publications from 40 countries were received. The 2019 winner will be announced during the opening week.
