The festival, created by entrepreneur Alexandre Solacolu and former Paris Match director of photography Didier Rapaud, uses public and private funds to finance photojournalists for the production of new work. The projects then form part of the Photoreporter festival in Saint-Brieuc, France.
Last year, photographers Jim Brandenburg, Claudine Doury, Gwen Dubourthoumieu, Cédric Gerbehaye, Antoine Gyori, Gary Knight, Olivier Jobard, Pierre-Yves Marzin, Sonia Naudy, Zeng Nian, Pierre Terdjman, Tomas Van Houtryve, Gaël Turine and Ami Vitale shared a grant of €150,000.
Now the festival is calling for entries for its second edition, with professional photographers of all nationalities invited to submit a proposal with a detailed budget of up to €10,000. "The proposed subject must be unique, original, unpublished and not a work in progress," say the organisers. "One proposal per photographer will be considered."
Photographers have until 15 January 2013 to submit their proposals. Selected photographers will then have six months to complete their projects, which will go on show in Saint-Brieuc, France, from 19 October to 11 November 2013.
