Submissions for The MCBA Prize 2013 are now being accepted! 
View the details at: http://mcbaprize.org/

The MCBA Prize is the first honor to recognize book art from across the
field and around the world. The MCBA Prize celebrates the diversity of book
art and encourages discussion rather than limiting recognition to one
aspect of this vital field.

Five (5) finalists will each receive a $500 cash award, plus $750
travel/lodging stipend to attend the Book Art Biennial and MCBA Prize Gala
on July 27, 2013.

One (1) winner will receive an additional $2000 cash award (in addition to
the $500 finalist award and $750 travel/lodging stipend to attend the
Biennial and Gala).

A jury of three distinguished leaders in the field of book arts will review
all submissions, and narrow the field to five finalists. These five works
will appear on display at Minnesota Center for Book Arts during Book Art
Biennial 2013 on July 27-28, 2013. From these five works, the jury will
select the recipient of this year's MCBA Prize.

2013 Jurors:

- Sarah Bodman, Senior Research Fellow for Artists' Books at the Centre for
Fine Print Research (CFPR), University of the West of England;

- Sandra Kroupa, Curator of Book Arts and Rare Books at the University of
Washington Libraries;

- Buzz Spector, book, installation and mixed media artist, and Dean of the
College and Graduate School of Art in the Sam Fox School of Design and
Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.

Work must have been completed since April 1, 2011. Entry fee $40.

The deadline for entries is April 30, 2013 at 5:00pm (Central U.S. time
zone). All submissions must be made electronically.
