Nordic Dummy Award 2017
Fotogalleriet, Oslo

Nordic Dummy Award (NDA) is an award established by Fotogalleriet, Oslo.

During NDA's Open Call all artists with a connection to the Nordic countries are invited to submit their photobook dummy. A recognized jury selects a shortlist of candidates and a winner. The winner book is published by Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg and launched the year after the Open Call.

The Nordic Dummy Award was initiated in 2012 by Fotogalleriet and The Norwegian Association of Fine Art Photographers. Today it is administrated by Fotogalleriet with support from the Norwegian Photographic Fund. Fotogalleriet have also initiated collaborations with several other Nordic institutions to send the NDA on tour.
