Because creativity and boldness are cornerstones of our corporate culture, we have a long history of supporting photography. We own a prestigious collection of works by highly respected photographers including Antonio Salgado, Georges Rousse and Michael Kenna. More than 50 photographs proudly adorn our offices in Paris and New York.


Enduring support for photography

In 2010, we took our support for photography to the next level with the launch of the “A photographer for Eurazeo” award. Every year, we recognize one professional or student photographer for their work on a preselected theme. Winners receive a €10.000 grant and their photos are displayed at an exhibition in Paris. The “A Photographer for Eurazeo” prize, which is awarded by a panel of well-known professionals, covers all fields of the discipline and is open to all styles of photography.


Ambitions scaled up for the 10th edition

For 2019, our plans were even more ambitious to step up our commitment to training and educating young people. We joined forces with the world-renowned ENSP (École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie) school of photography in Arles and introduced the “Eurazeo Young Photographers Prize”, consisting of a €5.000 grant. Supporting novel, transformative educational projects has been our mantra since 2015. True to our primary goal of speeding up the pace of change, we have forged a series of partnerships with non-profit and academic partners. In 2020, we stepped up our commitment even further by creating an endowment fund.

Strong employee engagement

Our employees are highly supportive of our corporate philanthropy in the field of photography. They demonstrate this every year through their involvement in choosing the prize winner and their attendance at the annual preview of the exhibition showcasing our winner’s works in Paris.

“A Photographer for Eurazeo” is now well-established in France’s photographic arts community and has a reputation for excellence and tremendous creativity. It is a source of pride and a real incentive for us to continue.
Philippe Audouin, Chief Financial Officer

2020 and beyond: tell us stories

Since the “A photographer for Eurazeo” competition celebrated its 10th edition in 2019, we have shaken things up by giving free rein to photographers’ creativity, rather than asking them to work based on a specific theme. It is up to them to reveal something about their world, to transport us to new places and to inspire us. That change of direction perfectly fits our support to photography in the broad sense of the term, today and in the future.
