Prix dédié aux films photographiques et diaporamas sonores.


Award created for the photographic movie

Photographic film is a tool for creative experimentation and dissemination that can offer new dimensions to those who use photography as a field for personal expression.


The LNP PRIZE is dedicated to this format, which continues to develop and explore the photographic image. Created at the initiative of Freelens, it is awarded every year at the festival LES NUITS PHOTO, in partnership with the SAIF, and in collaboration with the media 9 LIVES MAGAZINE, VIENS VOIR and POLKA MAGAZINE, and the festivals PROMENADES PHOTOGRAPHIQUES DE VENDÔME and LES NUITS DE PIERREVERT.

This prize is international, and concerns all photographic writings. All authors are invited to participate, whether they are confirmed, emerging, students or amateurs (directors, photographers, editors, artists, journalists etc.).
