Pierre and Alexandra Boulat Association: Grant Deadline July 1

from the VII website:

“Formed in the memory of Pierre and Alexandra Boulat by friends and family after the death of Alexandra Boulat in 2007 the Association seeks to keep the spirit of father and daughter alive through making their work available to the public and creating an annual grant to a photographer and sponsoring the education of young photographers.

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.

APPLICATION FORMS can be downloaded here.

Submissions to:
