Prix Elysée: Launch of the second edition in January 2016
At the Musée de l’Elysée, we think that accompanying photographers in the evolution of their career is as important as preserving their art for future generations. In a shared commitment to foster creativity and to support the production of new work, the Musée de l’Elysée and Parmigiani Fleurier are pleased to launch the second edition of the Prix Elysée.

A prize supporting artistic production in the field of photography
Result of a partnership between the Musée de l’Elysée (Lausanne, Switzerland) and Parmigiani Fleurier, it offers financial help and curatorial guidance to artists with a passion for photography and books, so they can take a decisive step in their career. It is open to mid-career photographers or artists from around the world. There is no imposed theme or preference for any particular photographic genre or technique.

Financial help and curatorial guidance for a new project
Eight nominees are selected by the Musée de l’Elysée upon their entry portfolios. Each will receive a contribution of CHF 5,000 towards the initial presentation of an original and new project in the nominees’ book, published for the occasion. The winner, chosen by an international jury, will receive CHF 80,000 to produce his/her project and publish a book. The nominees’ and the winner’s books will be printed by one of the Sandoz Family Foundation printing companies.

Important exposure for the nominees and the winner
The eight nominees and the winner will all benefit from important exposure throughout the duration of the prize (2016–18). The first edition of the prize was won by Martin Kollar for his project Provisional Arrangement.

Call for applications
The call for applications is open from January 4 to February 26, 2016. Application guidelines and the complete prize rules are available at www.prixelysee.ch.
