The prestigious award is now in its eighth year, having been set up in 2012 to support emerging and unpublished photographers. The First Book Award has helped launch the careers of image-makers like Paul Salveson and Joanna Piotrowska, via shortlists nominated by a panel of international experts – until now. This year, for first time, the shortlist has been drawn from an open call.
The shortlist was compiled by five industry experts, including Michael Mack, founder of MACK; Sarah Allen, assistant curator at Tate Modern; Emma Bowkett, director of photography at the FT Weekend Magazine; Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa, photographer and writer; and Polly Fleury, director of special projects at the Wilson Centre for Photography.
