Established in 2009, The MCBA Prize is an international artist’s book award that honors excellence in new work from across the sweeping spectrum of book art. Join our international book arts community as we explore the work of this year’s five finalists—and witness the winner of the 2020 MCBA Prize announced live. You’ll get a front-row seat for an artist conversation between Juror Betty Bright and the newly-revealed winner. Take advantage of our live Q&A and ask the featured speakers a question. Plus, toast to MCBA’s 35th anniversary!

Register here to attend the virtual event. There is no cost to attend, but U.S. attendees who contribute $20 or more get a Prize Party Kit delivered to their home! ($10 digital Prize Party kits are also available.)

View the finalists’ work on our prize site. Images, artist statements, and short videos will give you an up-close experience of the beauty, depth, and range of each artist’s book.

Vote for the People’s Book Art Award! Choose from among the 37 finalists and semi-finalists selected by this year’s juror, Betty Bright. The winner, whom we’ll reveal in January 2021, receives $500!
