CALL FOR CANDIDATES FOR THE FOURTH ANNUAL CARMIGNAC GESTION PHOTOJOURNALISM AWARD

With this award, the Carmignac Gestion foundation has chosen to support the in-depth work of photojournalists, whose profession is in the grips of a severe financing crisis. Every year, a EUR 50.000 grant is awarded to fund a photo-reportage carried out over a period of several months on a specific, topical subject. The Foundation promotes the award via an exhibition and the publication of a monograph. It also purchases four of the photographs included in the report. True to its humanist approach, the Carmignac Gestion Foundation wishes to use this award to give these key witnesses of todays world the means to go where others will not, and to continue visiting zones that are largely ignored by the mainstream media outside periods of conflict. Epicentres of grievous violence with worldwide repercussions, the selected zones are the scenes of intense human suffering. That is why the topic proposed for the 2012 Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award is: Chechnya The panel of judges will meet on 30 October 2012 to select the winner, who will have to submit his or her photo-reportage by 31 March 2013 at the latest.

Organisation of the call for candidates: Responses must be sent to the Foundation by 30 September 2012.
