Ten grants, totalling €255,000 in all, will be awarded this year to young creative types and media professionals who submit an original, French-language project in the fields of writing, audiovisual arts, music and digital technology.1

Awarded by prestigious judging panels since 1990, these grants – through their size and the range of disciplines honoured – make the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation France’s leading patron of young creative talent. In addition to providing the winners with the financial resources they need to bring their projects to fruition, the grants also serve as a springboard for their future careers.

Candidates must be under the age of 30 (35 for booksellers and TV scriptwriters) and have made a successful start in their professional discipline. Application packets, which can be downloaded from the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation’s website at , must be returned to the foundation’s headquarters2 by 25 June 2011.
