The Lucie Awards 2010

The Lucie awards were  announced at an event on the 27th October.  Of particular interest to me were the book publisher of the year and the magazine of the year.  The nominees and winners for these two categories are shown below:

BOOK PUBLISHER OF THE YEAR
Aperture for Destroy this Memory by Richard Misrach
21st Editions for Listen by Herman Leonard (winner)
Only Photography for Yukata Takanashi Photography 1965-74

Steidl for Broken Manual - Special Edition by Alec Soth

Taschen for Kate Moss by Mario Testino 
PHOTOGRAPHY MAGAZINE OF THE YEAR
Aperture (winner)

Blind Spot

C International Photography Magazine

Foam International Photography Magazine

Polka Magazine
The Herman Leonard book is a very plush affair, and at $9000 a bit out of my league (we do have a book of his photographs though, if you are interested).  You get some idea of how plush the 'Lucies' are in the YouTube clip below.
