The Pierre & Alexandra Boulat Award, sponsored for the seventh time by LaScam (société civile des auteurs multimedia), is designed to help a photographer carry out an original reporting project through an 8,000€ endowment.
This award was established by the Pierre and Alexandra Boulat Association to promote the creation of documentary work with a social purpose. Formed in the memory of Pierre and Alexandra Boulat by friends and family after the death of VII founding member Alexandra Boulat in 2007, the Association seeks to keep the spirit of father and daughter alive through making their work available to the public and creating an annual grant to a photographer and sponsoring the education of young photographers.
