Canon Female Photojournalist Award 2016 supported by Elle Magazine

For the sixteenth year, Canon and Images Evidence will present the Canon Female Photojournalist Award. For the third 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 3, the 2016 winner, Darcy Padilla / Agence VU’, received the award and prize money of €8000 for her planned 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. The report will be presented in Perpignan at the 2017 festival.

This year we are presenting the exhibition of the 2015 winner, Anastasia Rudenko, with her report on mental illness in Russia.
