Take a look behind the lens of the winners - our photo books won the German Photo Book Award 23|24 in various categories.

The German Photo Book Award is a prestigious award that recognizes outstanding achievements in the field of photo book design and production. This award was created to promote and honor the diversity and creativity of photo book culture in Germany. Every year, photo books of different genres and styles are evaluated by an independent jury consisting of experts in photography, graphic design, publishing and the art scene.

The evaluation criteria include aspects such as image composition, print quality, layout, innovative design and the relevance of the content of the photo books. The Deutscher Fotobuchpreis serves as a platform to recognize photographers, authors, graphic designers and publishers who have created outstanding photo books through their artistic and technical work.
