The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation is pleased to announce the 2019 panel of judges for its annual Book Awards. This year's panel is comprised of leading authorities in the fields of Photography and the Moving Image and includes journalists, gallerists, photographers and academics.

The 2019 Photography Book Award will be judged by Liz Jobey, Associate Editor FT Magazine, Chrystel Lebas, Kraszna-Krausz Foundation Photography Book Award Winner 2018 and Anne McNeill, Director, Impressions Gallery.

The Moving Image Book Award will be judged by Karen Alexander, Senior Tutor of Curating Contemporary Art, Royal College of Art, James Bell, Features Editor, Sight & Sound Magazine and Tamar Jeffers McDonald, Reader in Film Studies, University of Kent.

The awards are internationally recognised as the UK's leading prize for books on Photography and the Moving Image, celebrating those that have made an original and lasting contribution to their field. From small publishers to well-established, the Foundation provides a platform and space for new voices and perspectives, whilst championing diversity in the publishing industry.

Books are judged on their content, presentation, texture, quality and design and the panel will be looking for the best original works published over the last 12 months. The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation will announce the long and shortlists in March, with all titles exhibited at Photo London (16-19 May, Somerset House). The winners will be revealed at a ceremony hosted at the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) on 16th May 2019.

In 2018 awards were presented to Chrystel Lebas for Field Studies: Walking through Landscapes and Archives (FW: Books) and Susan Courtney for Split Screen Nation: Moving Images of the American West and South (Oxford University Press).
