Presented by the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson every other year, the HCB Award is a prize of 35.000 Euros intended for photographers who have already completed a significant body of work with an approach close to that of documentary.
Candidates should be nominated by an institution. Applications from individual photographers will not be considered.
The range of potential institutions is broad and has no geographical boundaries: museums, photographic societies, photographers’ agencies, art schools, universities, galleries, magazines, festivals, publishers… are entitled to present a candidate.
The winner must use the prize for carrying out a project which would otherwise be hard to accomplish within the normal conditions of his activity.
Institutions or candidates can download application forms from the website: www.henricartierbresson.org/en/hcb-prize/rules/
Sending of applications, between March 2nd and April 30th 2015.
The prize-winner will be announced in June 2015 by an international jury.
