Momento Pro was honoured to produce this custom collector’s edition book and box set for British war photojournalist Tim Page. Nam Contact is an epic retrospective of his unseen black-and-white Vietnam War pictures encompassing an oversized 448-page book, a reproduction of a 1966 Kodak flexographic box with an insert for a loupe, and an embossed folio case for a signed and numbered print. Learn about its creation in Will Shipton’s article, Nam Contact: Symphonic coda to Tim Page’s Vietnam, originally published in Inside Imaging on 16 April 2021.
If you’re keen to extend the photographic skills and creativity of your camera club members, consider hosting an annual photo book competition. Through the process of transforming a series of photographs into a book, they’ll refine their photo editing skills, learn about sequencing, layout and design, and improve their visual storytelling.
To make setting up a competition an easy process, we’ve created a How To Host A Photobook Competition Guide as well as a Photobook Competition webpage template, and profiled some winners of existing club comps below. If you’re inspired, feel free to hit us up for a voucher prize too.
