The Carmignac Photojournalism Award

The Fondation Carmignac is pleased to be part of the festival Visa pour l’Image for the ninth consecutive year.

The 14th Carmignac Photojournalism Award is devoted to the situation of women, girls and minorities in Afghanistan. The winners will be announced on Thursday, September 5, at the evening screening at Campo Santo. They will also present their work at a conference on Friday, September 6.

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 provides backing needed to produce a photographic report requiring investigative journalism on issues of human rights, the violation of fundamental rights, and related geostrategic questions.

An international jury selects the winners who receive a grant to cover reporting work in the field for a period of six months.

The investment in the human and financial resources needed to produce such reports which are subsequently presented as touring exhibitions and a new online platform is part of an approach targeting the general public with the Carmignac Award highlighting crises and challenges in the world today.
