Prix Pictet – Shortlist Announced at Gallerie Les Filles du Calvaire, Paris

The shortlist for the third Prix Pictet was announced on 10 November 2010 at Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire, Paris. There is an exhibition which will run from 12 to 27 November where members of the public can view the entries.

There are twelve shortlisted artist’s work on display from the original 450 entrants.  The theme for the third cycle of the Prix Pictet is Growth. The prestigious competition, although only in its third year is one of the worlds premier environmental photography competitions. The winner of the huge prize sum which works out at about £63,000 will be announced in March 2011.

Looking at the Prix Pictet website at the shortlist entries the standard looks incredibly high and it was very inspiring.  One of my favourite projects was Oil by Edward Burtynsky.  Edward is one of the worlds finest industrial landscape photographers and is much celebrated in Canada.  You can read what he has to say about his project on the Artists Statement part of the Prix Pictet website.
