Prix Pictet is a global prize that aims to highlight sustainability and environmental issues through photography.

Founded by the Pictet Group in 2008, the Prix Pictet prize is awarded to the photographer who has produced a series of work that is both artistically outstanding and presents a compelling narrative related to the theme of the award. The theme for this cycle is Space.

Photographers are nominated by a group of leading experts – critics, curators, journalists and gallerists – who each propose between two and five photographers for consideration by an independent jury. Each cycle of the Prix Pictet tours the world bringing the work of the shortlisted photographers before a wide international audience.

Twelve photographers were shortlisted for the prize and Richard Mosse has been announced as the winner of the 2017 prize for his series Heat Maps.
