The Prix Pictet is the world’s leading photography and sustainability prize supported by the Swiss bank Pictet & Cie. The Prix Pictet sets out to find photographs that communicate important messages about global environmental issues under a broad theme. Entry to the Prix Pictet is by nomination. The nominators for the Prix Pictet are a group of leading experts in the visual arts, including directors and curators of major museums and galleries as well as journalists and critics. They lead the search for a series of images that have the power and artistic quality demanded by the Prix. Each nominator is invited to propose a maximum of five photographers. The prize will be awarded in early October.

The theme of the fourth cycle of the Prix Pictet is Power which as a theme has great creative reach. Power embraces contradiction and paradox in equal measure. The same forces that result in disaster and despair can also generate hope and renewal. Advances in technology to generate renewable energy mean that the powers of the wind, the sea and the sun can now be converted into sustainable forms of energy.

The shortlisted artists are:
