from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Prix ​​Nadar is a French photo book award founded in 1955 by the Gens d'Images and Albert Plécy society. The award goes to the best French-language photo book from last year on historical or contemporary photography.

A jury of ten experts from the field of photography meets in the Bibliothèque nationale de France to choose the winner . The jury chair changes annually. In addition to the National Library, all the award-winning works are also included in the library of the “Musée Nicéphore Niépce” in Chalon-sur-Saône . The award is named after the French photographer Felix Nadar (1820–1910), one of the pioneers of photography.
