The Prix Elysée is an international photography prize and competition organised by the Musée de l’Elysée with the support of Parmigiani Fleurier, supports photographic production and encourages mid-career photographers or artists to forge a new project, on a theme of their choice.
The Prix Elysée was founded in 2014 and aims to enable promising photographers – eight nominees and one winner – to take a decisive step forward in their career. The prize runs every two years and the third edition will take place from 2018 - 2020.
The Musée de l’Elysée is one of the world’s leading museums entirely dedicated to photography. Since its establishment in 1985, the museum has worked to improve public understanding of the photographic medium through innovative exhibitions, key publications and engaging events.
Photographers should send to the Musée de l’Elysée a portfolio (an unpublished photographic project) consisting of 10 - 20 photographic prints. There is no overall theme or preference for any particular photographic genre or technique.
All applications must be written in English or French.
