The 2010 Prix Pictet photography prize, sponsored by a Swiss private bank, will be on economic growth as a blessing and a curse. Given that the honorary president of Prix Pictet is Kofi Annan, the secretary general of the United Nations, and the chairman of this year’s jury is Professor Sir David King, a former chief scientific adviser to the British government, it is not hard to guess in which direction it will lean.

Earth and Water were the previous two topics of the annual Prix Pictet in sustainability and photography.
