ABoT - Artists' Books on Tour

ABoT are calling for entries; there is still time to apply. I haven't done so yet but plan to! Open to all European Artists. 
The following was text taken from their website: 


To create more public awareness for the book as an independent genre of art production, the EU-funded project"Artists' Books on Tour - Artist Competition and Mobile Museum" was launched in June 2010 by the MAK - Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art (Vienna) with the MGLC - International Centre of Graphic Arts (Ljubljana)and the UPM - Museum of Decorative Arts (Prague). The core activities of the project cover 
  • the implementation of a competition among European artists
  • the evaluation of the results by an international jury awarding the best submissions
  • the presentation of selected works in a "Mobile Museum" touring several European cities
