THE RENCONTRES D’ARLES AWARDS 2020

In solidarity with the artists, the festival and its partners have rallied together to ensure that the 2020 awards can go forward as planned.

LOUIS ROEDERER
DISCOVERY AWARD 2020

Since its creation, the Rencontres d’Arles has promoted photography and all its stakeholders. In response to our call for projects, we received 200 applications, 10 of which made the shortlist. Then a jury will choose the Louis Roederer Discovery Award’s winner. The €5,000 prize is used to purchase the project from the winning artist and his or her gallery. In a spirit of fairness because of this special year, there will be no Public Award but a €15,000 prize to be shared between the artists and the galleries presenting the nominated projects.
