Prix Carmignac du Photojournalisme

Prix

En 2009, face à une crise des médias et du photojournalisme sans précédent, Édouard Carmignac a créé le Prix Carmignac du photojournalisme afin de soutenir les photographes sur le terrain.

Dirigé par Emeric Glayse, le Prix Carmignac du photojournalisme soutient, chaque année, la production d’un reportage photographique et journalistique d’investigation sur les violations des droits humains dans le monde et les enjeux géostratégiques qui y sont liés. 

En 2015, le Prix Carmignac du photojournalisme s’est transformé en véritable “salle de rédaction”. Cette évolution majeure a permis à Narciso Contreras, 7ème lauréat, de revenir avec les toutes premières preuves d’esclavage de migrants en Libye – reportage révélé dans Paris Match et Time en octobre 2016. En développant des partenariats avec de grands musées européens – Saatchi Gallery à Londres, Palazzo Reale à Milan, Fotografie Forum Francfort, Cité des sciences et de l’industrie à Paris, … – l’exposition du Prix attire, en 2017, plus de 500 000 visiteurs.

Le Prix Carmignac du photojournalisme a permis la production de reportages primés sur Gaza (Kai Wiedenhöfer), le Pachtounistan (Massimo Berruti), le Zimbabwe (Robin Hammond), la Tchétchénie (Davide Monteleone), l’Iran (Newsha  Tavakolian), la Guyane (Christophe Gin), la Libye (Narciso Contreras), le Népal (Lizzie Sadin) et l’Arctique (Yuri Kozyrev & Kadir van Lohuizen).

La 10e édition est consacrée à l’Amazonie et traitera des questions liées à sa déforestation. Le lauréat sera annoncé lors du festival Visa pour l’Image, à Perpignan, en septembre 2019.

⁠[CALL OPEN] ⁠📣⁠

We were very excited to announce the theme of the 11th edition of the #PrixCarmignac: the Democratic Republic of the Congo (#DRC)

4 times the size of #France, the DRC benefits from immense #natural & #mineral resources; the world’s largest #rainforest after the #Amazon; the world’s largest producer of #cobalt and #coltan, the second largest producer of #diamonds… But the DR Congo, ripped apart by recurrent inter-community and political conflicts, also accumulates misery, epidemics and clashes. ⁠

📸The Carmignac Photojournalism Award aims to support a journalistic and photographic project which will document these complex realities, but also address the grounds for hope for the 90 million inhabitants of the DRC, of which 60% are younger than 20 years old: education and public health initiatives; conservation initiatives for wildlife; and the fight against trafficking, corruption and the control of a few individuals and multinationals over mining exploitation. ⁠

The jury will meet in Nov. 2019 and is composed of:⁠
– Simon Baker (@simonalamep), Director of @mep.paris ; ⁠
– Maryline Baumard (@marylinebaumard) Editor-in-Chief @lemondeafrique ; ⁠
– Comfort Ero Africa Program Director, International Crisis Group ;⁠
– Meaghan Looram (@mloo), Director of Photography @nytimes⁠ ; ⁠
– Julienne Lusenge, President of SOFEPADI (Women’s Solidarity for Peace and Integral Development) and Director of the Fund for Congolese Women (FFC)⁠ ;⁠
– Fiona Shields, Director of Photography @guardian⁠ ; ⁠
– The Laureate of the 10th Edition of the Carmignac #Photojournalism Award. ⁠

The pre-jury has the task of pre-selecting between 12 and 15 proposals and is composed of :⁠
– Magdalena Herrera, (@magdalena.herrera), Director of Photography @magazinegeo ; ⁠
– Nicolas Jimenez (@nikkhola) Director of Photography @lemondefr ; ⁠
– Nick Kirkpatrick (@nick_kirkpatrick), Photo Editor for Special Projects and Investigations @washingtonpost @washpostphoto ;

Deadline: 16th October 2019 23h59 GMT

« 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 »

Fonctionnement

Sélectionné·e par un jury international, le·la lauréat·e reçoit une bourse de 50.000€ lui permettant de réaliser un reportage de terrain de 6 mois avec le soutien de la Fondation Carmignac qui finance, à son retour, une exposition itinérante et l’édition d’un livre monographique.

A la fin de chaque édition, quatre photographies léguées par les lauréats rejoignent la collection Carmignac.

Organisation de l'appel a candidatures

La désignation du lauréat se fait en deux phases :

1. Le pré-jury composé d’experts de la photographie, de la presse et du monde de l’art, a pour mission de choisir entre 12 et 15 dossiers parmi ceux reçus.

2. Le jury, composé de personnalités spécialistes du thème et de l’image contemporaine, a pour objectif de sélectionner un projet lauréat.

À l’issue de la sélection, le Jury rencontre le photographe lauréat afin de l’entendre et lui fournir, si besoin est, les appuis dont il aura besoin tout au long de son projet – de la préparation du reportage à l’exposition.
