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 unveiled a poignant tribute in 2023: a grant program dedicated to the publication of photography books. This initiative serves as a lasting homage to Schaeffer's profound influence and dedication to visual storytelling.

The primary aim of this grant is to provide crucial support and recognition to professional press and documentary photographers, empowering them to bring their projects to life in the form of printed books. The grant is open exclusively to photographers residing in France, who are invited to collaborate with a publishing house to submit their proposals for consideration. Through this collaborative effort, the grant seeks to showcase the diverse perspectives and narratives captured by photographers, fostering a deeper appreciation for the art of photography and its power to evoke emotion and provoke thought.

Generously sponsored by La SAIF, the grant holds a significant value of €10,000. It represents a heartfelt commitment to honoring Schaeffer's legacy and nurturing the creative endeavors of photographers within the French community. As a symbol of support and encouragement, this grant aims to uphold Schaeffer's spirit of innovation and passion for visual storytelling, ensuring that his legacy continues to inspire generations of photographers to come.
