Launched in 2008, the Levallois Prize upholds its commitment to support contemporary photography.
Open to all forms of photographic expressions, the international Prize welcomes submissions from young photographers aged under 35. The winner of the Prize receives a grant of 10,000 Euros and a two-month long exhibition at the Galerie de L’Escale in Levallois (to be held in October-November 2016).
After over seven years of existence, the Prize receives today around 500 submissions yearly, which confirms the importance of a prize acknowledging an initiating career for young photographers. The amount of the grant makes it one of the best-endowed international awards in favor of emerging photographers.
Whether in narrative, esthetic, technical or formal terms, the Levallois Prize wishes to highlight young photographers’ creative research through its selection. The new team, in close collaboration with the City of Levallois, impulses new momentum to the 2016 edition, featuring new actions intended to broaden its national and international scope; involve the public more inclusively with contemporary photography; and provide professional guidance to the laureate.
A new digital platform has been developed to facilitate online submissions, as well as access to the Prize for the young international photography community (emerging countries in particular).
An Audience Award has been introduced last year to allow active involvement of the public too often excluded from this kind of event. Relayed by social media and our partners, the vote is open to all and organized trough the digital platform out of the selection of the fifteen shortlisted candidates. The Audience Award will be exhibited with the Levallois Prize laureate and the Special Mention at the Galerie de l’Escale in Levallois in the fall.
The Jury for the Levallois Prize and the Special Mention will comprise French and International personalities from the world of the image in related fields, including publishers, gallery owners, curators, or again critics. The jury will meet on June 2016.
The announcement of the Prize laureate, the Special Mention, and the Audience Award winner will be revealed at the Rencontres d’Arles, early July 2016, during the Festival’s inaugural professional week, a major event in the annual photography calendar.
Finally, the Levallois Prize laureate will benefit professional guidance through meetings organized with photography professionals (institutions, galleries, publishers, critics, curators, scholars, etc).
