Jury Prize (Cannes Film Festival)

Jury Prize (Cannes Film Festival)

The Jury Prize ( _fr. Prix du Jury) is an award presented at the Cannes Film Festival. It is chosen by the jury from the 'official section' of movies at the festival [ [http://uk.imdb.com/Sections/Awards/Cannes_Film_Festival/awards_summary IMDb Cannes awards summary] ] . It is considered less prestigious than the other main prizes, the Palme d'Or and the Grand Prix.

From 1951 until 1966 the name Special Jury Prize was used for the second most important award of the festival. In 1967, the second place was renamed Grand Prize of the Jury and the Special Jury Prize disappeared. Two years later, in 1969, the Jury Prize was created separately from the Grand Prize, and both have been awarded regularly until the present day. The Special Jury Prize reappeared twice in the 1990s. There was also a one-off prize in 1946 called the International Jury Prize.
