call for entries


Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson is now accepting applications for the biannual HCB Award, presented in partnership with Aperture Foundation, from now until April 30. The HCB Award is 35,000-euro prize for photographers who have completed a significant body of work with an approach close to that of documentary. Candidates should be nominated by an institution (museums, galleries, independent curators, publishers). Find rules for entry here and more information on the prize here.

Eighteen months after the reception of the prize, the winner will have an exhibition of his work at the Fondation HCB in Paris and a catalogue will be published. The prize-winner will be announced in June 2015 by an international jury. Past recipient include Chris Killip in 1989 and Josef Koudelka in 1991. The HCB Award is made possible with the partnership of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
