Female photojournalist award calling for entries

Organised annually by the French Association des Femmes Journalistes and Canon France, with the support of Le Figaro Magazine, the contest is opened to professional women photojournalists of any age and nationality.

The winning photographer will receive a €8000 grant to produce a body of work that will then be exhibited at the Visa pour l’Image photojournalism festival in 2014.

The winner will be selected in June by a jury made up of photography and press professionals as well as members of the Association des Femmes Journalistes.

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.

Deadline for entry is 31 May. For more details and to enter, visit canonafjaward.com.
