Since 1998, the Bourse du Talent has been rewarding young photographers. In 2023, the prize is evolving to meet the needs of emerging artists. With its emphasis on new documentary writing and image mediation constraints, it has become the mouthpiece for new photographic expressions.
The Bourse du Talent is also a springboard for the professionalization of photographers, encouraging them to flourish on the photography market. Each year, two or three photographers are rewarded for their innovative projects, using a variety of documentary strategies and exploring fields such as the visual arts, science, literature or new technologies.
The Bourse du Talent is open to all photographers, whatever their nationality, and encourages eco-responsible and committed approaches. The winning photographs will be exhibited at the Bibliothèque nationale de France.
