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 and geostrategic issues in the world.

“Arctic: New Frontier” : Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen co-laureates of the 9th #PrixCarmignac documented the consequences of #globalwarming in the #Arctic region. One of them is the militarization of strategic areas.

Kadir van Lohuizen traveled in the North of #Canada, to Qaussuituq* in the South of Cornwallis Island. It’s one of the coldest inhabited places in the #world. Winter goes from October to June, with temperatures dropping to -50°C. 
Resolute is the strategic point of one of the famous “Northwest Passage” routes, whose water sovereignty is in dispute, particularly with the United States. 
Hence the recent installation of a Canadian Armed Forces training center.

Find out more about the militarization of the Arctic region by many #great powers with the #PrixCarmignacArctic ‘s photographs exhibited in the #French #photo #festivals : @lagacillyphoto & @festivalphotoguilvinec

*Qaussuituq means : “where there is no #dawn”

This week, the @prixcarmignac is taking over the #Smithsonian feed with the award-winning work of 9th edition #PrixCarmignac laureates @kadirvanlohuizen and @yuri.kozyrev (@noorimages), titled “Arctic: New Frontier,” currently on display at @saatchi_gallery in London, @festivalphotoguilvinec and @lagacillyphoto in France.⁣

This reportage, which follows the photographers’ six month journey from April to September in #2018 as they covered the 15,000 kilometres of the #ArcticCircle, is a visual testimony examining the consequences of #climatechange on the entire region. The forces of #tourism, #militarization, exploitation of #gas and mineral #resources, and the opening of trade routes as a result of #globalwarming mean that the #Arctic is today the site of clashes between countries and multinationals who are locked in a chaotic competition for control of these zones.⁣

Pictured above is Gordon Omnik who stands on watch to spot bowhead whales. The local #Inuit community is allowed to catch 10 of them each year. Normally, the hunting starts when the sea ice breaks in the spring: the whales migrating up north use the channels to come up to breathe. If the ice melts, the whales can swim around with more ease, which makes them much harder to hunt.⁣

The World Meteorological Organization report on the state of global climate in 2018 confirms the urgency of climate action.⠀
Sea level is rising at an accelerated rate : “In 2018, the average sea level was about 3.7 mm higher than in 2017 and was the highest ever recorded.”⠀

On this World Oceans Day, it’s important to raise awareness on the impact of our actions on the oceans as they provide 70% of our oxygen…⠀

“Normally, the sun reflects on the surface of sea glaciers. Because of this, this solar energy is not absorbed into the ocean. If the predictions are right, in 11 years during the summer there will be no more ice in the North Pole. The warmth will be absorbed by the ocean and the sea level temperature will rise even further up. It will have serious consequences on our climate and on the world sea maps. I think we are not aware of all this (…). ” – @kadirvanlohuizen, co-laureate of the 9th #PrixCarmignac⠀⠀

In just two weeks, the equivalent of 7,000 soccer fields were destroyed in the Brazilian Amazon.⠀
In 2018, over 20 200 acres of forest disappeared from the face of the earth which was a record. ⠀
And those recent numbers published in @courrierinter raise fears for 2019’s figures.⠀

The theme of the #PrixCarmignac’s 10th edition is dedicated to the Amazon and will address issues related to its deforestation.⠀

“The Amazon basin is one of the most important ecosystems on this planet. Home of many cultures, the Amazon region provides biodiversity, beauty, water, food and much more. ⠀
But its balance is under threat : mining and oil extraction, illegal logging and deforestation, pollution of its rivers, are threatening life itself. ⠀
This year, the 10th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award will highlight the Amazon basin, its beauties and its threats and will raise awareness about its importance for the planet. ⠀
I am honored to chair the jury of this important project.” – Yolanda Kakabadse⠀

In case you missed it, to coincide with #WorldEnvironmentDay, @prixcarmignac will be taking over the feed with the award-winning work by 9th edition laureates @kadirvanlohuizen and @yuri.kozyrev (@noorimages) titled “Arctic: New Frontier,” currently on display at @saatchi_gallery & @festivalphotoguilvinec. ⁣

“The Door to the Underworld,” a nickname given to the one-kilometer-long Batagaika crater, is a dramatic tadpole-shaped hole, a consequence of the thawing permafrost. It lies 400 miles north of Yakutsk, near the Yana river basin, and visitors often recall hearing a “disturbing melody”; a mixture of cracking ice and the stream of water flowing through the tundra. ⁣

This crater, photographed by 9th edition @prixcarmignac co-laureate @yuri.kozyrev (@noorimages), is a testimony to the dramatic impact #climatechange has had in the Russian Arctic. Each year, it grows by approximately 100 feet according to the Institute of Applied Ecology.⁣

Mission

Selected by an international jury, the laureate receives a 50.000€ grant, enabling them to carry out an in-depth research in the field, with logistical sup-port from Fondation Carmignac. The latter presents a travelling exhibition and the publication of a monograph upon their return. At the end of each edition, four photographs bequeathed by the laureates are included in the Carmignac collection.

In 2015, the Award has turned into an “editorial room”. These developments have made possible for Narciso Contreras, 7th laureate, to bring back the first proofs of migrant slavery in Libya – published in Paris Match and Time Magazine in October 2016. By involving new museum partners edition after edition – Saatchy Gallery in London, Palazzo Reale in Milan, Fotografie Forum in Frankfurt, Cité des sciences et de l’industrie in Paris, … – the Award exhibition attracts, since 2017, over 500,000 visitors.
