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.

“For a few days in August 2019, the whole world’s attention was focused on the Amazon as the worst fires in nearly a decade raged (…). What are the drivers of this destruction ? Violence, greed, corruption, poverty, inequality, bad governance and inefficient public policy are just some of the intersecting factors that are leading to the forest’s demise.” Sam Cowie (@samcowie84), british journalist who accompanied Tommaso Protti (@tomprotti) during his 6-month photo report. ⁠

Paulo Paulino Guajajara, member of the Guardians of the Forest, was killed by illegal loggers last week. He was also portrayed in @tomprotti’s series “Terra Vermelha”. Protti was deeply shocked by this news, deploring that ‘Brazil is one of the deadliest country for leaders of indigenous, peasant and traditional communities’. The series, currently published in LFI 08.2019, will also be exhibited at @mep.paris this December. #lfimagazine #savetheamazon #lfiloanpool #amazonia #leicamonochrom

🌳 Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon has increased by 93% in the first nine months of 2019, compared to the same period last year, according to government data published by the country’s space research agency INPE.⁠

For September alone, the INPE data showed deforestation rose 96% from a year ago. This is less than the 200% rise recorded in July and August.⁠

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.
