Presented by the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, the HCB Award supports the creation of a photography project which could not be achieved without this help. 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 an institution — museum, gallery, independent curator, publisher, etc.
The HCB Award is presented once every two years and grants the indivisible amount of 35 000 euros. The winner is selected by an international jury of seven prominent personalities of the art world.
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 2023.
The Fondation d’entreprise Hermès is the patron of HCB Award.
