Cash Prize
The HCB Award, granted by the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson once every two years, supports the creation of an ambitious photography project.

The HCB Award provides 35,000 euros and is accompanied by an exhibition and a publication of the project.

It is intended for a photographer who has already completed a significant body of work, close to the documentary approach. The candidate must be supported by a professional from the photography field (gallery, museum, publisher, media, independent curator, etc.).

A pre-selection committee reviews all applications. The jury members can access all dossiers during the final deliberations. The winner is selected by an international jury of seven prominent personalities of the art world. Each jury member has one voice. The final decision of the jury remains undisputable.

The winner’s artwork project realised thanks to this grant will be exhibited at the Fondation HCB and published as a book, in the Spring 2025.
