Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson and Aperture Foundation team up to offer one lucky photographer their “ªDecisive Moment”¬!
Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson is accepting applications for the biannual Henri Cartier-Bresson Award, presented in partnership with Aperture Foundation, from now thru April 30. The Henri Cartier-Bresson Award is 35,000-euro prize for photographers who have completed a significant body of work with an approach close to that of documentary. Candidates should be nominated by an institution (museums, galleries, independent curators, publishers). More information on the prize and rules here.
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 prize-winner will be announced in June 2015 by an international jury. Past recipient include Chris Killip in 1989 and Josef Koudelka in 1991. The HCB Award is made possible with the partnership of the Fondation d’entreprise HermÃ¨s.
