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 AWARD 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, COPIE PRIVÉE, CRL10 - ESPACE JEMMAPES, and in collaboration with the medias FISHEYE MAGAZINE & 9 LIVES MAGAZINE, and the festivals PROMENADES PHOTOGRAPHIQUES DE VENDÔME and LES NUITS DE PIERREVERT.

This award 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.).

To apply for the LNP 2022 AWARD, each candidate must complete an application form. The call for applications runs from June 16 to September 15, 2022.

You must also read the RULES OF THE LNP AWARD, and each application must be validated by the author's membership in the FREELENS association.
