Stephen Dupont: Piksa Niugini Portraits and Diaries was awarded First Place in Books by the New England Museum Association (NEMA). This project records noted Australian photographer Stephen Dupont’s journey through some of Papua New Guinea’s (PNG) most important cultural and historical zones. Through images and personal diaries, this remarkable body of work captures the human spirit of the people of PNG, one of the world’s last truly wild and unique frontiers.
About the NEMA Awards
The New England Museum Association sponsors an annual Publication Awards Program, which recognizes excellence in design, production, and effective communication in all aspects of museum publishing. Entries are judged by a panel experienced in publication, design, marketing and communications. Awards are given to those entries which most effectively present their message to the intended audience.
This year, there were 168 publications from 57 museums entered in 20 different categories. Competition winners will be recognized and exhibited at the 96th Annual NEMA Conference in Boston/Cambridge, Massachusetts November 19-21, 2014.
