The 12th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award is dedicated to Venezuela and its hardships at the individual, social and ecological levels. The Carmignac Photojournalism Award will provide support for a photojournalistic project that documents this volatile social crisis.
The Carmignac Photojournalism Award is open to all photographers, of all nationalities. Participation can be individual or collaborative.
The pre-jury, made up of directors of photography, has the task of selecting between 12 and 15 proposals from those received.
The jury, consisting of specialists in photography and in the given theme, choose a winning project. At the end of the selection process, the jury meets the winning photographer, in order to talk to him or her and, if necessary, to provide the support he or she will need throughout the duration of their project – from the preparation of the reportage to its final exhibition.
Directed by Emeric Glayse, the Carmignac Photojournalism Award annually funds the production of an investigative photo reportage into human rights violations globally and the related geostrategic issues. Selected by an international jury, the laureate receives a grant of €50,000 enabling them to carry out a reportage on the ground for 6 months with the support of the Carmignac Foundation which presents a travelling exhibition and the publication of a monographic book upon their return.
