La Saif-Benoît Schaeffer Publishing Grant for a Photography Book
As a tribute to photojournalist Benoît Schaeffer who passed away in 2020, La Saif is launching a new grant program for the publication of photography books. The grant is designed to support and highlight the work of a professional press or documentary photographer, and provide backing needed to publish a printed book. The grant is open to photographers living in France who make a submission in association with a publishing house for the production of a book.
The grant sponsored by La Saif is for €10,000, and will be presented to the first recipient Alfred Yaghobzadeh, for his planned monograph of his life’s work.
*La SAIF, the French collecting society for original authors of visual work in architecture, design, drawing, 3-D work, illustrations, cartoons/comics, painting, photography and sculpture.
