Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award

Deadline: 30 September 2011


“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 today’s 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.

As focal points for extreme tensions, the selected zones are the scene of intense human suffering, or indeed the epicentre of grievous violence with worldwide repercussions. For this very reason, the topic proposed for the 2011 Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award is:


The panel of judges will meet on 4 November 2011 to select the winner, who will have to submit his or her photo-reportage by 31 March 2012 at the latest.

Organisation of the call for candidates: Responses must be sent to the Foundation by 30 September 2011.

Oliver Laurent started an interesting discussion about this on Facebook, and the general issue of low numbers of applications for grants and awards. Carmignac appears to stress the point that the door is open to newcomers, which is commendable. Deadline is September 30.


“The prize is open to all photographers irrespective of their age, nationality or experience. “This is an independent prize and all projects will be judged on their qualities, not on the name of the photographers who enter” says a spokeswoman."
