The Rencontres d’Arles Discovery Award goes to a photographer or an artist making use of photography whose work has been recently discovered internationally or deserves to be. The winner is chosen by a vote of photography professionals present in Arles during opening week and receives 25,000 €.

Five professionals from different countries and different photographic fields – Elisabeth Biondi, Caroline Issa and Masoud Golsorkhi, Nathalie Ours, Carla Sozzani, Luis Venegas – have each been invited by Christian Lacroix to designate three photographers to exhibit at the Rencontres as candidates for the Discovery Award.
