Our free photography contest recommendation of the day!
Canon France, in association with Images Evidence, has announced that the 15th annual Canon Female Photojournalist Award is open until 22 May 2015 for submissions from female photojournalists of any age and nationality.
Once again, the award is supported by Elle magazine and Canon France will grant the winning female photojournalist €8,000 to help her to continue and complete a photojournalistic project on a social, economic, political or cultural subject.
A jury made up of photography and press professionals will select the winner in June. Applicants will be judged by both 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 presented to the winner at the Visa pour l’Image international festival of photojournalism in Perpignan, France, during the professional week from 31 August – 6 September 2015. The winner will produce an ongoing one year project which will lead to an exhibition or showing at the Festival in 2016.
