The Pierre and Alexandra Boulat Grant
We will award a Grant to a photographer to produce a story that must be told but that the photographer cannot find support for from within the Media. The first Grant will be awarded at Visa pour L’Image in Perpignan 2008 as it was an event very close to the hearts of Alexandra and Pierre Boulat. The photographer should submit, no later than July Ist each calendar year, a one page proposal with a portfolio of 20 pictures to prove competency. A first committee would make a pre-selection in Paris and the final decision should be made in Perpignan with a jury of 7 or 9 people chosen among the most important photo editors at Visa pour L’image.
