Founded in 1975, the German Photo Book Prize is a competition in which the jury awards the best photo books in German-speaking countries. The award honors special achievement by authors, photographers and publishers in the photo book sector. In addition to publishers, the competition is also open to photographers and photo designers.

The award ceremony takes place at the end of the year within the framework of the Stuttgart Book Week. After the ceremony all the prize winning books as well as the short-listed and long-listed photo books will be exhibited in different cities in Germany and other parts of the world. In collaboration with the Stuttgart Media University, the Goethe-Institut Hongkong is glad to present the longlisted, the shortlisted and the award-winning photo books of 2019-2020’s German Photo Book Prize. Visitors will find highly professional publications not only in German, but in English as well.
