The winner of the First Prize will be produced and published by Kettler, Germany. Second and Third Prize is a book production voucher given by our partner k-books, who specializes in high-quality book productions in small quantities. There is a charge of 36 € per entry and book. Registrations will be open from 15 November 2017 until 03 April 2018.

They can apply for the REVIEWS by mentioning this on the DUMMY AWARD registration form or by applying on our website (at a later stage). To take part in the REVIEWS, they have to be in Kassel on 31 May 2018 (Festival opening day) and pay a (reduced) € 60.00 fee for two 30 minutes sessions or a € 120.00 fee for four 30 minutes sessions.
