The City of Levallois organizes every year the Prix Levallois to support young international photography, an opportunity to encourage and promote new talents. The Prix Levallois is open to young photographers born after January 1st, 1983, of any nationality, and nominates one winner who will receive €10,000 and an exhibition at the Galerie de L’Escale in Levallois in October-November 2018.
This grant attributed every year to the laureate makes it one of the world’s best endowed awards in support of emerging photography. A Special Mention and an Audience Award will also be attributed. Both recipients will be exhibited along with the winner of the Prix Levallois at the Galerie L’Escale. 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.
Each year there are fifteen nominees. Their projects are presented with impartiality and good will in front of a jury in order to reward a Laureate and a Special Mention. The jury is composed of five members : four people from the world of photography and a member of the City of Levallois’ town hall. The Audience award is attributed after an online vote that gives voice to all photography lovers.
Award-winning photographers will be guided by the curators who will help them finalise their project. The challenge is to reveal the quality of their proposition, by highlighting its intelligence and sensitivity.
A sponsorship with an internationally renowned photographer will accompany the 2018 edition. Valerie Jouve will host the prize award ceremony during Les Rencontres d’Arles in July 2018 and the opening of both exhibitions in Levallois in October 2018.
