    Organised by the Musée de l’Elysée with the support of Parmigiani Fleurier, the Prix Elysée is open to photographers or artists using photography, regardless of nationality, who have already enjoyed their first exhibitions and publications. Photographers must be recommended by a reputed professional in the fields of photography, contemporary art, cinema, fashion, journalism or publishing.

    The Prix Elysée was founded in 2014 and aims to enable promising photographers – eight nominees and one winner – to take a decisive step forward in their career. The prize runs every two years and the third edition will take place from 2018 - 2020.

    Photographers should send to the Musée de l’Elysée a portfolio (an unpublished photographic project) consisting of 10 - 20 photographic prints. There is no overall theme or preference for any particular photographic genre or technique.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    Open worldwide to photographers or artists using photography who have already enjoyed their first exhibitions and publications.

    The winner, chosen by an international jury, will receive 80,000 CHF (approx. 85,230 USD) to produce his/her project and publish a book.
