Henri Cartier-Bresson Passporte Prize in Street Photography

Passporte Prize helps photographers gain crucial experience


Images of street photography can depict the atmosphere of a space and the soul of its inhabitants by opening a window onto life in the locality. Its occupants inhabit and modify the space with their acts of physical and economic survival, attempts at entertainment and spiritual elevation, and mutual interactions as they embrace their humanity.

Joel Meyerowitz said about street photography: "It's like going into the sea and letting the waves break over you. You feel the power of the sea. On the street each successive wave brings a whole new cast of characters."

We are looking for your photographs that represent the contemporary street.


Photos from eligible submissions will be selected for a group exhibition displayed on ThePassporte.com, and highlighted through social media.

Juror's Award: US $300 for one photographer
Director's Award: US $200 for one photographer
