Carmignac Photojournalism Award
In 2009, Fondation Carmignac established the Carmignac Photojournalism Award. Directed by Emeric Glayse, it funds annually the production of an investigative photo reportage on human rights violations and geostrategic issues in the world. Selected by an international jury, the laureate receives an endowment of 50,000 euros, enabling them to carry out an in-depth reportage on the ground, with the logistical support of Fondation Carmignac. The latter presents a traveling exhibition and the publication of a monograph, upon their return.
Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen (NOOR) were awarded the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award dedicated to the Arctic. The endowment allowed them to carry out their pioneer double polar expedition «Arctic: New Frontier». For the very first time, two photojournalists have simultaneously covered the entire Arctic territory to bear witness to the irreversible effects of climate change.
The traveling exhibition «Arctic: New Frontier» was first presented at the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie, Paris in November-December 2018 and will travel to London in Spring 2019. It is accompanied by a bilingual French-English catalogue co-published by Fondation Carmignac and Reliefs Editions.
Done in collaboration with Nathalie Dran (Paris), the publicity campaign for the “Arctic: New Frontier” exhibition at the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie and book launch reached an online readership 622 million and 5.63 million in print circulation.
