In addition to an award of 50,000 euros, the Carmignac Gestion Foundation supports the winner after completion of the project by financing an exhibition and a monograph.

In choosing to support this profession which is critically underfunded, Carmignac Gestion wishes to provide these key witnesses of the contemporary world with the means to go where others don’t.
