Paris, France

Presented by the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, the HCB Award is a prize to stimulate a photographer’s creativity by offering the opportunity to carry out a project that would otherwise be difficult to achieve. It is intended for photographers of all nationalities who have already completed a significant body of work, a talented photographer in the emerging phase of his or her career with an approach close to that of documentary. There is no age limit. Candidates should be nominated by an institution (museum, gallery, independent curator, and publisher). The prize is indivisible: 35,000 Euros that is awarded every other year.

The winner will be designated by an International Jury composed of 7 prominent personalities in photography, literature, art or cinema. Eighteen months after the reception of the prize, the winner will have an exhibition of his work at the Fondation HCB in Paris and a catalogue will be published. The HCB Award is made possible with the partnership of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès. From 2015, as part of its new alliance with Aperture Foundation, the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès will carry further the prize-winner’s production with a show in New York.
