ICRC Humanitarian Visa d’or Award – International Committee of the Red Cross


The eighth ICRC Humanitarian Visa d’or award will recognize the work of professional photojournalist who has covered a humanitarian issue related to a situation of armed conflict. The subject chosen for entries in 2018 is urban warfare and the impact on civilians, either trapped and hiding or forced to flee.

The ICRC was founded more than 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 Véronique de Viguerie for her report on the humanitarian consequences of the conflict in Yemen. The award was presented during the evening show on Thursday, September 6.
