Created in 2008, the Prix Levallois is a springboard for young international photographic creation. For ten years, it has been rewarding photographers under 35. A freedom of tone and expression that seduces young photographers whose approaches are free from any artistic division. The Prize doesn’t require a theme nor a format, only the quality of the work counts in the process of selecting artists.
Each year there are fifteen nominees. Their projects are presented with impartiality and good will in front of a jury in order to reward a Laureate and a Special Mention. The jury is composed of five members : four people from the world of photography and a member of the City of Levallois’ town hall. The Audience award is attributed after an online vote that gives voice to all photography lovers.
Award-winning photographers will be guided by the curators who will help them finalise their project. The challenge is to reveal the quality of their proposition, by highlighting its intelligence and sensitivity.
Photographs of the three winners will be shown at the Galerie L’Escale in Levallois, in October-November.
The Prize is open to any form of photographic expression. There is no theme.
Submission must include:
a selection of 15 to 20 photographs, from one single series,
a project note (under 2000 characters) in French or in English, presenting the project;
a short summary of the project (under 600 characters);
the submission form, fully completed and signed;
a CV (one page maximum) including the candidate’s background.
