For the love of documentary photography: The Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson and the Fondation d’Entreprise Hermès have confirmed their partnership with regard to the Henri Cartier-Bresson International Award. The collaboration covers the next three competitions in the years 2013, 2015 and 2017.
The 35,000 euros in prize money allows a photographer to realize a project that he or she has been wanting to do for a long time. The condition for participation is that the photographer can show publications and exhibitions that share a connection to documentary photography – just like Leica photographer and co-founder of the Magnum Agency Henri Cartier-Bresson did. Submissions for the 2013 award can be sent in between March 1 and April 15. 18 months after the prize money is awarded, the resulting series will be on display at the Fondation HCB in Paris.
