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.

This year’s award, with prize money of €8000 funded by the ICRC, goes to Juan Arredondo / Getty Images Reportage for his report on Child Soldiers in Colombia. The award was presented during the evening show on Thursday, September 1.
