The Henri Cartier-Bresson International award is open for entries between 1 March and 15 April 2013.

The Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation and the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès have teamed up for the next three years of the award, which is given every other year, in 2013, 2015 and 2017.

The HCB award is given to a photographer that is already a talented individual and has already produced a body of documentary like work.

The prize is €35,000, and the winning photographer is then required to use the money to carry out a project which would otherwise be hard to achieve. The winner will also have an exhibition of their work at the Fondation HCB in Paris.

Entrants must also be nominated by an institution.

For more information and to download the entry form, visit the HCB website.
