Don’t Forget Ladies!!!
Call for Submission
The French Association of Women Journalists (AFJ) and Canon Communication et Image France are launching, with Images Evidence, the sixth Canon Female Photojournalist Award granted by the Association des femmes journalistes (AFJ).
This Award is handed out every year at the Visa pour lâ€™image Festival in Perpignan (France). It is granted by Canon Communication et Image France and aims at supporting a woman photographer for the completion of a documentary project. To the value of 8000 Euros, it is opened to professional women photojournalists of any age and nationality.
The winner will be selected by a jury made up of photography and press professionals as well as members of the Association of Women Journalists*. Applicants will be judged both upon the presentation of their project and their previous work. Among the selection criteria are the quality of the photographs, as well as the journalistic thoughts and relevance of the chosen subject.
The Award will be handed to the winner in Perpignan on September 2006, during one of the showing nights of the Visa pour lâ€™image Festival. The winner will produce an ongoing one year project which will lead to an exhibition or showing at the Festival in the 2007 edition.
