The Viviane Esders Endowment Fund is pleased to announce the opening of the call for applications for the third edition of the Prix Viviane Esders.

The prize rewards the winner with an exceptional financial award of €60,000 given by Viviane Esders. €10,000 of this endowment is to be used by the photographer to contribute to the publication of a monograph.

The Prix Viviane Esders honors each year the work of a professional European photographer over 60 years old, independent and engaged in a creative process.

It rewards photographers whose work over a period of forty years or more deserves to be highlighted.

Viviane Esders created the Prix Viviane Esders after more than forty years in the art market as a gallery owner, photography expert and collector.

The Prix Viviane Esders falls within the framework of programmes developed by the endowment fund created by Viviane Esders. As a continuation of a passionate, independent and committed life path, the purpose of this endowment fund is to continue the contribution of its founder to photography, to bring to life a collection of nearly 600 pieces, most of which are the result of singular encounters, and to extend the initiatives of transmission and sharing around a love of photography that Viviane Esders promotes.

This year’s Viviane Esders Prize will be presented during the Paris Photo event in November 2024.
