Created in 2008, the Prix Levallois supports photographers under 35, of all nationalities. All projects are welcome : the Prize does not impose any theme or format, only the quality of the work counts in the selection of artists.
Inexorably, images keep on illustrating the world. By its quality, its suspension of time, photography is a tool of choice to question this same world. All subjects and all forms are fields of investigation. Today, photography plays with its technical freedom, from analog to digital, from black and white to colours, to let the authors develop their perception. The aim of the Prix Levallois is to select among the international photo production, quality, originality and excellence.
Fifteen finalist photographers are chosen by the art directors, to be presented and defended with impartiality and good will before a jury composed by personalities from the world of photography, the sponsor of the Prize and the Deputy Mayor for cultural affairs of the City of Levallois.
Will be elected, the Prize winner who receives a € 10,000 grant and a Special Mention who receives a DSLR camera.
The Audience award is attributed by photography lovers who will choose online, their favourite photographer according to the rule of one click per day.
Another great reward for the three winners : the conception of an exhibition — with the help of the art directors — that will be presented at L’Escale gallery, in Levallois on October 2020, which for the first time will be traveling. La Passerelle, Scène nationale des Alpes du Sud, in Gap will welcome the show in December or January 2021.
The Sponsor 2020 Jane Evelyn Atwood
Jane Evelyn Atwood is one of the first women photographer that faced up to society’s ardent issues by taking frontally charge of the subject with full conceptual, visual, and political requirements. Thanks to a characteristic writing and sensitivity — those of a free woman — she finds a respectful distance to deal with her topics. Her relevant approach has made her, nowadays a reference.
