PRIX {virginia} International Photography Prize for Women 2022

Awarded every two years since 2012, The Prix Virginia is the first photography prize exclusively reserved for a woman photographer, regardless of her age or nationality. The work submitted must never have yet been exhibited in France and must not be the result of an editorial assignment or advertisement commission.

Each candidate must submit 12 - 18 photographs on any subject (one cohesive body of work rather than single images) and a short letter, written by the candidate describing the creative and artistic dimension of the work submitted.

Photos submitted to the Virginia Prize must never have been exhibited in France.




The winner will receive a cash prize of 10,000 €.


The photographer who wins the prize cannot enter again at a later date, but all the other contestants are welcome to apply for the Prix Virginia again.
