[Call for applications] Photography & Science Prize 2021

08 Jul 2021

The 1 + 2 Residence, ADAGP and CNRS are committed to supporting contemporary photographic creation by creating the Photography & Sciences Prize, with the media partners Fisheye and Sciences et Avenir - La Recherche.







This annual prize is intended for photographers of French nationality, regardless of age, developing an author's approach. An endowment of 7,000 euros will help the winning photographer to finalize a photographic series in progress, which combines photography and science. The remuneration of the winning photographer will be included in the endowment. The winner will also benefit from dedicated communication with media partners. The presentation of the complete series will be the subject of a screening and panel discussion at ADAGP in Paris.



This prize is open to all professional photographers of French nationality who develop an author's photograph.

The proposed photographic series must not have already been awarded a prize in a competition, prize or festival.

The jury will select only a photographic series in progress, not completed, fully associating photography and science. All photographic writings are concerned, all scientific disciplines can be approached.
