Prix Pictet

Founded by the Swiss bank Pictet & Cie in 2008, the Prix Pictet has established itself as the world’s leading prize in photography and sustainability. It has two elements: the prize of SFr100,000 and the Commission, in which a nominated photographer is invited to undertake a field trip to a region where the bank is supporting a sustainability project. The winner of the sixth cycle is French photographer Valérie Belin for her series ‘Still Life’
