ICRC Humanitarian Visa d’or award – International Committee of the Red Cross
The award is open to professional photojournalists.
The sixth ICRC Humanitarian Visa d’or award will be for a photojournalist reporting on women in war.
The jury is particularly interested in stories featuring women as victims of sexual violence, as fighters or taking over as head of the family when the men have left, either fighting, killed in combat or held captive.
The ICRC was founded 150 years ago for the purpose of providing assistance and protection for people in times of armed conflict and other situations of violence. The ICRC operates in some sixty countries.
The award, which was founded in 2011 and has prize money of 8000 euros funded by the ICRC, will be presented during the evening show on Thursday, September 1, 2016.
