HCB Award


Presented by the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, the HCB Award supports the creation of a photography project which could not be achieved without this help. It is intended for a photographer who has already completed a significant body of work, close to the documentary approach. The candidate must be supported by an institution — museum, gallery, independent curator, publisher, etc.

The HCB Award is presented once every two years and grants the indivisible amount of 35 000 euros.

The HCB Award benefits from the support of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, highlighting the foundation’s ongoing commitment to contemporary artistic creation and photography.
