The MCBA Prize, a new international honor awarded by Minnesota Center for
Book Arts, is the first of its kind to recognize book art from across the
field and celebrate the diversity of this vital discipline. All artists who
use the book format as their primary means of expression are encouraged to
apply. A distinguished panel of jurors, themselves leaders in the field,
will consider all eligible work, from hand-printed fine press books, to
inexpensive pamphlets, to one-of-a-kind sculptural works. In total, over
$8,000 will be awarded to four finalists and one winner. Entries must be
received by March 6, 2009. The winner will be announced at a gala
celebration on July 25, 2009.
The award of The MCBA Prize is an important component of MCBA¹s 2009 Book
Art Biennial, a combination of presentations, peer discussion sessions and
hands-on workshops exploring the efficacy of artists¹ books as agents of
social change and activism. Registration materials for the Biennial will be
available January 1, 2009.
