Helsinki Photo Festival is honoured to announce bringing the Paris Photo–Aperture PhotoBook Awards to Helsinki in 2024.

During Paris Photo this November, Aperture declared the winners of the 2023 Paris Photo–Aperture PhotoBook Awards—the eleventh annual celebration of the photobook’s contributions to the evolving narrative of photography. 

The award recognizes excellence in three major categories of photobook publishing: First PhotoBook, PhotoBook of the Year, and Photography Catalog of the Year.

The final round of the 2023 PhotoBook Awards was juried by:
Laia Abril, artist
Tamara Berghmans, curator, Fotomuseum Antwerpen (FOMU)
Alexis Fabry, curator and founder of Toluca Fine Art
Alona Pardo, curator, Barbican
Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph and Professor of Photography Rights and Representation at University of the Arts London

The exhibition of the thirty-five books shortlisted for the 2023 PhotoBook Awards will travel to Printed Matter in New York City (US), from January through February 2024, and then to international venues, including presentations at the Helsinki Photo Festival and Photo Australia Melbourne, among others.
