On Sunday, 2 April 2017, the Federation of European Professional Photographers (FEP), the European confederation of national professional bodies of photographers from 29 countries, presented the European Book Prize of the Year Awards. A high-ranking international jury, headed by Italian photographer Adriano Scognamillo, chose the best photo books from entries across Europe. Every two years the event is held in a different member country. This year the illustrious crowd of professional photo-enthusiasts met in Catania, Italy.
“We are especially pleased about our authors winning in three out of six categories. Such a prestigious award is a wonderful confirmation of their excellence,” said a delighted Lois Lammerhuber at the award ceremony.
