HCB Award 2021 : Call for applications


Awarded by the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, the HCB Award is a creative help that allows a photographer to realize or continue a project that is difficult to complete without this support. It is aimed at experienced photographers who have already accomplished significant work in a sensitivity close to documentary. Photographers must be presented by an institution (gallery, museum, publishing house, magazine or by an independent curator).

The HCB Award is awarded every two years at the end of June and offers the winner a scholarship of an indivisible amount of 35,000 euros. The winner is chosen by an international jury made up of seven eminent personalities from the world of the arts.

In spring 2023, the winner’s project produced thanks to this grant will be exhibited at the Fondation HCB in Paris and a book will be published on this occasion.

The Hermès Corporate Foundation is the sponsor of the HCB Award.
