Now in its seventh cycle, the Prix Pictet was founded by the Pictet Group in 2008. Today the Prix Pictet is recognised as the world’s leading prize for photography. The award focuses on a theme that promotes discussion and debate on issues of sustainability. The prize of 100,000 Swiss Francs is awarded for a body of work that addresses most powerfully the theme of the award, which for this cycle is Space.

The Jury for Prix Pictet Space is: Sir David King (Chair), UK Foreign Secretary’s Special Representative for Climate Change; Valérie Belin, photographer, Laureate of sixth Prix Pictet; Martin Barnes, Senior Curator, Photographs, V&A; Philippe Bertherat, former managing partner, Pictet Group; Jan Dalley, Arts Editor, Financial Times; Dambisa Moyo, economist and author; Sebastião Salgado, photographer; Wang Shu, architect.

Sir David King, Chair of the Jury, said today: “The works presented for this edition of the Prix Pictet were of an exceptionally high standard. The range of creative response by the some 700 photographers nominated for the award was truly remarkable. Reviewing work of such quality and diversity was no easy task, but no less fascinating for that. After a long debate we arrived at a shortlist of twelve artists. On behalf of the jury I should like to congratulate each of them. We very much look forward to reviewing their work at the V&A next year."

Each cycle of the Prix Pictet tours the world, including exhibitions in over a dozen countries annually, bringing the work of the shortlisted photographers before a wide international audience. The Prix Pictet is also published in book form, with detailed documentation of the work of each of the shortlisted photographers, together with images from the wider group of nominees and essays by leading writers on the theme of the prize.

The six previous laureates are Benoît Aquin (Water), Nadav Kander (Earth), Mitch Epstein (Growth), Luc Delahaye (Power), Michael Schmidt (Consumption) and Valérie Belin (Disorder).
