Historia Prizes


logo_historiaBNP Paribas has committed to ensuring that its employees know the bank’s history. In addition to this internal necessity, the group has clearly stated its objective to make its history known as widely as possible. This is the sense behind its partnership with Historia,
the most widely read history magazine in France, in organising the Prix Historia.

These prizes are awarded to outstanding works in all forms of expression: comics, novels, biographies, books for young people, video games and historical exhibitions, etc. The works combine scientific excellence and general public appeal, which is the vocation of Historia, the magazine.

Our partnership with the publication Historia takes concrete form in another way – the joint production of content – through the edutainment mobile app, Quizz Histoire Eco and the publication of a brochure about the BNP Paribas real estate heritage, etc.
