Carmignac Photojournalism Award

Award

 

 

In 2009, while media and photojournalism faced an unprecedented crisis, Edouard Carmignac created the Carmignac Photojournalism Award to support photographers in the field.

Directed by Emeric Glayse, it funds annually the production of an investigative photo reportage on human rights violations, geostrategic issues in the world. 

In 2015, the Carmignac Photojournalism Award turned into a real“newsroom”. This major development allowed Narciso Contreras, 7th laureate, to return with the very first evidence of migrant slavery in Libya – a report that was first published in Paris Match and Time in October 2016. 

With the development of partnerships with major European museums – Saatchi Gallery in London, Palazzo Reale in Milan, Fotografie Forum Frankfurt, Cité des sciences et de l’industrie in Paris, … — the Award exhibition attracted over 500,000 visitors in 2017.

The Carmignac Photojournalism Award has produced award-winning reports on Gaza (Kai Wiedenhöfer), Pashtunistan (Massimo Berruti), Zimbabwe (Robin Hammond), Chechnya (Davide Monteleone), Iran (Newsha Tavakolian), Guyana (Christophe Gin), Libya (Narciso Contreras), Nepal (Lizzie Sadin) and the Arctic (Yuri Kozyrev & Kadir van Lohuizen).

The 10th edition is dedicated to the Amazon and will address issues related to its deforestation. The laureate will be announced at the Visa pour l’Image festival in Perpignan in September 2019.

2,3 millions animals perished in the Bolivian Amazon fires since August 2019, according to the first estimates of environmental specialists.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Among the most affected species are rodents, ocelots (feline living in Latin America), anteaters, badgers, pumas, tapirs, jaguars, turtles, lizards, llamas, as well as aquatic animals. The fires also devastated the primary forest. It is now ” totally charred and the damage is irreversible”, lamented Sandra Quiroga, a university professor.⁠⠀

Permafrost, the thick subsurface layer of soil that remains below freezing point throughout the year, covers about 24% of the land of ​​the northern hemisphere. The consequence of its melting includes the release of methane, which then contributes to an increased rate of global warming as part of a feedback loop.⁠

This picture taken by Yuri Kozyrev (@yuri.kozyrev) shows a family of nenets herders leading their reindeer to summer pastures. For the first time in 2018, because of the melting of the permafrost, they were unable to complete their yearly transhumance.⁠

⁠📸 9th Carmignac Photojournalism Award was dedicated to the Arctic and chaired by climatologist Jean Jouzel. 9th edition co-laureates, Yuri Kozyrev (@yuri.kozyrev) and Kadir van Lohuizen (@kadirvanlohuizen) focused on the consequences of the melting of the sea ice for the planet, and the medium-term prospect of its total disappearance.⁠

“Since the early 20th century, the sea level has risen 20cm, and continues to do so at an ever-accelerating pace, as it is now on the order of 3 mm per year. (…) The current expansion of the ocean in response to its warming contributes to about a third of this rise. The rest is essentially due to melt from glaciers and, since the 1990s, ice caps.” Jean Jouzel, President of the #PrixCarmignac ‘s 9th edition Jury⁠

In this photograph taken by Yuri Kozyrev (@yuri.kozyrev), Carmignac Photojournalism Award 9th co-laureate, you can see one of the largest natural gas liquefaction plants in the world, in Novoportovskoye, Yamal Peninsula, Russia. ⁠Dedicated to the Arctic and chaired by climatologist Jean Jouzel, the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award was awarded to Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen (@kadirvanlohuizen). Their double polar expedition project, «Arctic: New Frontier», focuses on the consequences of the melting of the sea ice for the planet, and the medium-term prospect of its total disappearance.⁠

“We children shouldn’t have to do this. But since almost no one is doing anything, and our very future is at risk, we feel like we have to continue. We children are doing this because we want our hopes and dreams back.” Greta Thunberg (@gretathunberg) – High-level Segment Statement, COP 24 ❄⁠

On September 20th, climate strikes have seen students demand action on climate change. Over 4,000 events from 150 counties were slated to take place. This third global youth-run climate strike in 2019 is poised to be the biggest yet.⁠

In 2018, Yuri Kozyrev (@yuri.kozyrev) and Kadir van Lohuizen (@kadirvanlohuizen), co-laureates of the 9th Carmignac Photojournalism Award, documented the consequences of #globalwarming in the Arctic region.⁠

Between 2002 and 2017, 1558 environmental activists were killed in 50 different countries.⁠

Functioning

Selected by an international jury, the laureates receive a €50,000 grant to carry out a 6-month field report with the support of the Fondation Carmignac, which produces, upon their return, a travelling exhibition and the publication of a monograph.

At the end of each edition, four photographs bequeathed by the laureates are included in the Carmignac collection.

Selection Process

The designation of the laureate is carried out in two stages:

1. The Pre-jury composed of photography, press and art world experts, has for mission to choose between 12 and 15 files among those received.

2. The Jury composed of personalities specialized in the theme and contemporary image, aims to select a winning project.

After the selection, the jury will meet the winning photographer in order to speak to them and to provide, if necessary, the support they will require throughout their project – from the preparation stage of the report, to its final exhibition.
