Call for application - LE BAL Prize for Young Talent with ADAGP

03 Jul 2019

The 2021 edition of the LE BAL Prize for Young Talent in association with ADAGP has launched!
Attention young photographers/videographers!



The LE BAL Prize for Young Talent in association with ADAGP is intended for photographers and/or videographers under 40 living in Europe. With a grant of 20,000 euros, this prize supports the winner for two years during the production of a creative project in progress.

Projects falling within the broad spectrum of the documentary image, fixed and in movement, will be honoured, representing different hypotheses on the world, different positions and different constructions of the human experience.

At the end of the two years period, the winner's work will be the subject of an exhibition in autumn 2021 in two areas of the BAL as well as a publication.

In its first edition, the LE BAL Prize for Young Talent in association with ADAGP was awarded to Clément Cogitore, for his Braguino or the Impossible Community project, exhibited at BAL from 15 September to 24 December 2017. The second edition honoured Yasmina Benabderrahmane for her project À bras le corps, which will be exhibited in autumn 2019.


The winner and the jury's favourites will benefit from two masterclass days in 2020 where they will have the opportunity to meet professionals and personalities from the world of visual arts (publishers, graphic designers, managers of institutions, critics, artists, collectors, etc.) in order to better understand the challenges of their work, to enrich and develop their creative project.
