The Prix Pictet has two elements: the prize of CHF 100,000 and the Commission, in which a nominated photographer is invited to undertake a field trip to a region where the Bank is supporting a sustainability project. Thiese prizes will be announced by Kofi Annan on 21 May 2014 at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
