The global award in photography and sustainability

Hope Shortlist Announcement

On the occasion of Les Rencontres d’Arles 2019, the Prix Pictet Hope Shortlist will be announced during a special evening screening at the Théâtre Antique in Arles on Thursday 4 July 2019.

The winner of the eighth Prix Pictet award will be announced at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London on Wednesday 13 November 2019.


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.
