On June 10th, after meetings at Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris, the jury of the HCB Award 2013 has nominated the French photographer Patrick Faigenbaum as the winner, for his project “Kolkata”.

The Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation and the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès are happy to announce their exclusive partnership for the Henri Cartier-Bresson International Award. This agreement is in effect for the next three editions of the competition, in 2013, 2015 and 2017.

Presented by the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, the HCB Award is a prize to stimulate a photographer’s creativity by offering the opportunity to carry out a project that would otherwise be difficult to achieve. 

It is intended for a photographer who have already completed a significant body of work, a talented photographer in the emerging phase of his or her career, with an approach close to that of documentary. The prize is of 35 000 Euros and is awarded every other year.

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 HCB Award is made possible with the partnership of the Fondation d'entreprise Hermès.
