Each nominee stands to receive 5,000 Swiss Francs (approx. 4,600 Euros). All shortlisted projects will be featured in a book publication due to be released in January 2021. The winner of the Prix Elysée, who will be announced in June 2021, stands to receive 80,000 Swiss Francs (around 75,000 Euros) to complete his or her project, which will subsequently be published in the form of a book.
