Photojournalism award provides €50,000 grant
Photojournalists worldwide can participate in this contest.
The Carmignac Gestion Foundation is accepting applications for the fourth annual Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award. The foundation awards those who wish to go where others will not, visiting zones that are largely ignored by the mainstream media. The topic of this year's competition is Chechnya.
Every year, a EUR€50,000 (about US$40,350) grant is awarded to fund a photo series completed 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.
Applicants must submit a full project presentation text; between 10 and 20 photographs with captions, drawn from a single series or from one topic that may or may not relate to the territory in question; and a detailed resume.
The application deadline is September 30.
