The Fondation Carmignac is pleased to be part of the festival Visa pour l’Image for the eighth consecutive year.
In 2009, when photojournalism and the media were going through an unprecedented crisis, Edouard Carmignac founded the Carmignac Photojournalism Award to support photographers working in the field.
Every year the award funds the production of a photographic report on violations of human rights together with the related geostrategic issues. An international jury selects the laureates who receive a grant to work in the field for a period of six months. The Fondation Carmignac provides the financial and human resources for the laureate to carry out their project, and to produce a monograph and a traveling exhibition, the goal being to shed light on crises and challenges in the world today.
The laureates of the 13th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award, on the subject of Ghana and electronic waste, are Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Muntaka Chasant and Bénédicte Kurzen / Noor.
