Each two years th given to a confirmed photographer who has had the opportunity to develop a significant piece in the documentary field.
The submissions period is about to open in a couple of week s (1st March and open until April 15th) and although pretty much every photographer is welcome, you’ll have to be sponsored / “presented” by an institution (gallery, museum, editors, magazines…).
The cash prize is meant to be used by the winner to develop a photographic report that he/she wouldn’t have had the possibility to do otherwise but before thinking about any prizes… you’ll have to wait until late June when the winner will be announced. After that… the winner will not only be given the possibility to develop a new documentary photographic series but also to exhibit @ Fondation HCB and have a published catalogue.
Loads of goodies as you can see. More information and the whole dossier with submission conditions this way.
