Viviane Esders Prize 2024 is now open for entries!
Viviane Esders Prize 2024: The Viviane Esders Endowment Fund is pleased to announce the third edition of its Prix Viviane Esders photography competition, that is awarded each year to professional European photographer over the age of sixty to reward the work of an independent photographer who is still active.
The Viviane Esders Endowment Fund is pleased to announce the opening the third edition of the Prix Viviane Esders, dedicate to professional European photographer over 60 years old, independent and engaged in a creative process.
It rewards photographers whose work over a period of forty years or more deserves to be highlighted. The Prix Viviane Esders falls within the framework of programmes developed by the endowment fund created by Viviane Esders. As a continuation of a passionate, independent and committed life path, the purpose of this endowment fund is to continue the contribution of its founder to photography, to bring to life a collection of nearly 600 pieces, most of which are the result of singular encounters, and to extend the initiatives of transmission and sharing around a love of photography that Viviane Esders promotes. A jury consisting of five personalities linked to the art world will select the winner with Viviane Esders among five nominated photographers. The exceptional grant is intended to celebrate the continuity of a career and encourage sharing. Part of this grant must be used by the winner to contribute to producing a book.
This year’s Viviane Esders Prize will be presented during the Paris Photo event in November 2024.
The Prix Viviane Esders is open only to professional European photographer over 60 years old, independent and engaged in a creative process.
The prize rewards the winner with an exceptional financial award of €60,000 given by Viviane Esders. €10,000 of this endowment is to be used by the photographer to contribute to the publication of a monograph.
There is no entry fee to participate!
