Viviane Esders Prize 2022


A prize that rewards the career of a professional European photographer over 60 years old, who is independent and still active. As a major player in the world of photography, Viviane Esders is continuing her commitment by creating the eponymous prize.

On January 15th, 2022, she launches the first edition of the Viviane Esders Prize. The prize rewards a career that has already been recognised, but whose importance now deserves to be brought to light and to be more clearly inscribed in the history of photography.

Each year, a prestigious jury will select five nominees, including one winner.




- A financial endowment of €60,000 offered by Viviane Esders
- Part of which will be devoted to the potential usefulness of the grant as detailed by the candidate in his or her note of intent
- A part reserved by the winner (€10 000) for the production of a book on his or her work
