La Saif / Benoît Schaeffer Publishing Grant for a Photography Book

In remembrance of the esteemed photojournalist Benoît Schaeffer, who left an indelible mark on the world of photography until his passing in 2020, La SAIF (Société des Auteurs des Arts Visuels et de l'Image Fixe) unveiled a groundbreaking initiative in 2023: a grant program dedicated to the publication of photography books. This visionary program seeks to honor Schaeffer's legacy by providing vital support to emerging and established professionals in the realms of press and documentary photography, fostering their careers and amplifying their voices through the medium of the printed book.

The grant, administered by La SAIF, represents a significant opportunity for photographers residing in France who are keen to collaborate with a publishing house to bring their envisioned book projects to fruition. Through this grant, recipients not only receive financial backing but also gain invaluable recognition and exposure within the photography community.

With an illustrious prize amounting to €10,000, this grant stands as a beacon of encouragement for photographers embarking on the arduous yet rewarding journey of publishing a book. As La SAIF prepares to bestow this esteemed award upon its second recipient, the legacy of Benoît Schaeffer continues to inspire and propel the artistic endeavors of photographers around the world.
