There are two categories in the APS Momento Pro Photo Book Competition, “Portfolio” and “Storytelling”.
Entries in the Portfolio category will typically reflect an overarching theme or subject that is explored through the artist’s choice of images. Entries in the Storytelling category will typically follow a story line illustrated by the artist’s choice of images and their sequencing. That said, it is quite possible for a photo book to fit into either category if, for example, it presents thematically-related images that tell a story. In such cases the author is free to enter their work in either category.
The following explanations provide further guidance on choosing the most appropriate category for your photo book entry.
A collection of images that stand together, typically illustrating a specific subject or topic. Text may be included but is not a compulsory element. The selection of images may showcase varieties of form, characteristic behaviours, different moods or any other aspects of the subject that the author wishes to portray. Ideally, the selected images will work together so that the portfolio has a visual impact “greater than the sum of its parts”. Judging criteria include excellence and fitness for purpose in photography; selection and sequencing of images; design, layout and typography.
A collection of images that stand together to present a story or narrative. Images are typically chosen and organised to illuminate the story that the author wishes to tell. Text may be included to augment the narrative but is not a compulsory element. In addition to excellence and fitness for purpose in photography, selection and sequencing of images, design, layout and typography, the judges will give weight to the originality of concept and design as well as an engaging visual narrative.
You may include your name on your book as the author.
Presentations will be made via Zoom on 27th October, further details to be advised.
