L’arche Project 25

Transmit and support

“The experience of each is the treasure of all”

Gérard de Nerval

The goal of L’Arche photographique is to support a young photographer aged under 25, providing help with the preparation, realisation, and promotion of a large reportage project on the theme ofThe Preservation of Biodiversity”.
The strength of this competition, the only one of its kind, lies in the original nature of its support. The winner benefits from personalised support over two years – the time needed to prepare, create, and promote an ambitious photographic or video project.” Gilles Martin
