As reported by the British Journal of Photography, Klavdij Sluban, a French photographer, has been selected for the 2009 European Publisher's Award for Photography. The announcement was made earlier today at the Rencontres d'Arles.
The European Publishers Award for Photography is a major initiative to encourage the publication of contemporary photography. Open to photographers world-wide, the competition is a unique collaboration between six European Publishers – Actes Sud (France), Apeiron (Greece), Dewi Lewis Publishing (Great Britain), Edition Braus (Germany), Lunwerg Editores (Spain) and Peliti Associati (Italy).
The Award guarantees that his project 'East to East' will now be published in book form.
