Canon Female Photojournalist Grant

For the twenty-first year in a row, Canon and Visa pour l’Image will be presenting the Canon Female Photojournalist Grant to an outstanding photographer in recognition of her contribution to photojournalism.

The 2021 winner, Acacia Johnson, will receive the award which has prize money of €8,000 to help carry out her project on bush airplane services in Alaska.

This prize was awarded during the screening evening of Friday, September 3, 2021 at the Campo Santo.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 winner Sabiha Çimen had to postpone work on her report on the “Hafiz, the Guardians of the Quran.” The exhibition of the work will now be programed at the 2022 Visa pour l’Image festival.
