Canon Female Photojournalist Award 2017 supported by Elle Magazine

For the seventeenth year, Canon and Images Evidence will present the Canon Female Photojournalist Award. For the fourth time, the award is being supported by ELLE Magazine.

Entrants are judged on both previous work and plans for a future project.

At the final evening show in Perpignan on Saturday, September 9, the 2017 winner will receive the award and prize money of €8000 from Canon for her planned report. The report will be presented in Perpignan at the 2018 festival.

This year we will present the exhibition of the 2016 winner, Darcy Padilla / Agence VU', with her report on Native American women in Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota, covering their struggle with alcohol and drugs, and their life in a community grappling with problems such as unemployment, financial insecurity and suicide.
