The Prix de la Photographie, Paris is considered one of Europe’s most prestigious photography competition. The competition aims to promote the appreciation of photography, to discover emerging talent, and introduce photographers from around the world to the artistic community of Paris. Winning photographs from this competition are exhibited in a high-profile gallery in Paris and published in the high-quality, full-colour Px3 Annual Book.
This year, two curators, one from the US and one from France will curate the Px3 exhibition in Paris. For only 8 hours, both curators will have access to the entries at the exact same time to select their favourite photographs. Once one curator selects a photo, it can not be selected by the other curator, creating a challenge between the curators to pick the best work first. In this time, they each will choose 20 photographs to be displayed in a traveling exhibition. The public will then vote on their selection, and the curator with the most votes will win $2000.
The Annual Px3 Competition will be judged as usual with Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards. And the Photographer of the Year and New Talent of the Year will receive their cash prize based on the jury vote and published in Px3 Annual Book.
