Every year, we wait impatiently for the results of the "Book Art" competition organised by the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture. Our country can hardly complain about any lack of artistic creative publications - 54 publishers presented as many as 116 books for the competition. The results of this competition are very important not only for publishers and printing houses, but also for designers and students, as well as for anyone interested in the possibilities or trends in the field of design and printing.
Photography books and albums are publications that require extreme precision and thoroughness, both in preparing the photographs and in ensuring their impeccable print quality. Every year, dozens or even hundreds of competitions take place around the world, and lists are published naming the best, the most beautiful and the most creative publications. Many photographers hope that their art books and photographic albums will get noticed, but bearing in mind the very stiff competition this can be extremely difficult. So it is always great to see photographers' hard work rewarded and getting the recognition they deserve.
