Created in 2008, the Prix Levallois supports photographers under 35, of all nationalities. All projects are welcome : the Prize does not impose any theme or format, only the quality of the work counts in the selection of artists.
Welcoming any form of photographic writing, the selection of the Prix Levallois aspires to promote young photographers’ creative research, whether in narrative, aesthetic, technical or formal terms. The Jury will particularly focus on the coherence between the formal and narrative artistic processes.
The Prix Levallois is open to young photographers born after January 1st, 1985, without condition of nationality.
Fifteen finalist photographers are chosen by the art directors, to be presented and defended with impartiality and good will before a jury composed by personalities from the world of photography, the sponsor of the Prize and the Deputy Mayor for cultural affairs of the City of Levallois.
