Canon champions visual storytelling in the Canon Experience zone at Visa pour l’Image 2018, on the ground floor of the Palais des Congrès. Free entrance.

Canon, the global image brand, is proud to be partner with Visa pour l’Image - Perpignan, for the 29th consecutive year and, at this year’s Festival of international photojournalism, will offer a program of inspirational events and activities to champion visual stories and those creating them.

The free Canon Experience zone, at the Festival headquarters in Perpignan’s Palais des Congrès, will showcase image technologies, and visitors will have an opportunity to have hands-on experience with Canon products.

For accredited photographers, expert technicians from Canon Professional Services (CPS) will be available to offer a quick check-and-clean service of their Canon products. For pros, there will be an opportunity to take out the latest Canon cameras on loan.

Canon is committed to nurturing the next generation of photojournalists, and is bringing 200 photography students from across Europe to Visa pour l’Image. In Perpignan, they will participate in workshops, attend lectures, join guided exhibition tours, network with the industry’s leading lights and have their portfolios reviewed by Canon Ambassadors.
