The Grand Prix is an award of the Cannes Film Festival bestowed by the jury of the festival on one of the competing feature films. It is the second-most prestigious prize of the festival after the Palme d'Or. Prior to its creation, the Special Jury Prize held the “second place.”

Name[edit]

Since 1995, the official name of the award has been simply the Grand Prix, but it has had two other names since its creation in 1967: Grand Prix Spécial du Jury (1967-1988), and Grand Prix du Jury (1989-1994).

In addition, the award should not be confused with the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film, which is the previous name of the Palme d'Or, the highest prize of the Cannes Film Festival.[1]
