The Bourse du Talent distinguishes young photographers. Conceived by photographers Jean-François Bauret, Didier de Faÿs and Yan Morvan in 1995, all founding members of the magazine Photographie.com, later joined by Edy Gassmann (Picto laboratories) and Guy Bourreau (Kodak) in 1998, they all had the idea to photographic transition toward digital era photography by supporting new talents.
The prize is divided into four categories: Reportage, Portrait, Fashion, Landscape. The deadline for submitting applications for these categories was extended to 10 May for the categories Reportage and Portrait, 30 May for Fashion and 30 September for Landscape, in particular because of the presidential election.
Since 2007, the winners of the “Bourse du Talent” are exhibited at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, while their works are collected by the Department of Prints and Photography. The exhibition also travels to the Maison de la Photographie in Lille, Asia (Photo Angkor Festival, Lianzhou International Festival). A screening is also given in Arles during the Rencontres Internationales.
