The theme for the eighth cycle of the Prix Pictet is Hope a theme that offers a wide range of creative possibilities and a strong set of connections to the Prix Pictet's overriding theme of sustainability. Hope in the face of adversity. Recycling. Reforestation. Rewilding. Science – advances in medicine – and technological solutions for global environmental problems. Falling poverty levels. It is time to examine some of the positive actions on sustainability that are beginning to emerge by contrast with the alarming analysis that constantly assails us in the global media.


For the seventh cycle, Prix Pictet has been devoted to the theme of Space. This edition, the Prix Pictet Jury included three new members: Valérie Belin, winner of Prix Pictet Disorder, the economist and author Dambisa Moyo and the renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado. The artists shortlisted for the seventh cycle have been unveiled at an evening screening at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris on 10 November 2016 and can be viewed here. The photographer Richard Mosse has been announced as the winner of the seventh Prix Pictet for his series Heat Maps at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
