Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) and the Frankfurt Book Fair are once again asking for entries to be submitted for the DAM Archi- tectural Book Award 2017. All art and architectural book publishers worldwide are invited to do so. A varying jury comprising DAM inter- nal jurors as well as external experts will judge the submissions ac- cording to design, concept, quality in terms of material and finishing, level of innovation and timeliness.
Even in this era of growing competition through new media and communication methods books on architecture still remain the basic architectural medium. Identifying the best architectural books pub- lished in the current year by way of this competition and presenting them to architecture enthusiasts is thus a fundamental task of the DAM Architectural Book Award. As an honorary award it does not in- volve any award money. The prize winners will be presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
The DAM Architectural Book Award was initiated in 2009 and ever since it has been met with increasing response. So this year’s DAM Architectural Book Award will consciously open up gain to an interna- tional range of participants.
The jury consists of external experts (publishers, photographers, book designers, architecture critics) and DAM staff members.
Public award-giving ceremony & media conference: October 11, 2017
