The prix VIRGINIA
The Prix VIRGINIA is organized by the Association SYLVIA S.
It recognizes the work of a woman photographer.
It is awarded in accordance with the following rules:
The Prix VIRGINIA, awarded every other year, beginning in 2012, is open to all living professional women photographers, regardless of age or nationality, with the exception of photojournalisms and advertising. Photographs submitted for the Prix VIRGINIA must not have been exhibited in France. Requests for assistance with projects, reporting, or exhibitions will not be considered.
The Jury is composed of eight key cultural figures who deliberate and designate the Winner. Members serve one two-year term, with the exception of the President and a representative of M, the magazine of le Monde.
The jury receives applications from candidates directly as well as through international experts (photo editors, photographers’ agents, critics, gallery owners, etc.). The deliberations of the Jury are secret and will not be communicated officially. The President of the Prix VIRGINIA Jury organizes and leads the discussion, and holds a casting vote. The Jury alone has the authority to resolve any questions not covered by these rules, and in the event that it decides no application meets the required criteria, it reserves the right not to award the Prize.
With the exception of the Winner, applicants may re-apply for the Prix VIRGINIA at each two-year cycle.
The jury shall designate the Winner and the Selection of the Jury consisting of 10 photographers.
