In addition to an award of 50,000 euros, the Carmignac Gestion Foundation supports the winner after completion of the project by financing an exhibition and a monograph. The Foundation also commits to buying four photographs from the work produced. In offering this award, the Carmignac Gestion Foundation aims to support photojournalists who find themselves working on the front-line of different situations. In choosing to support this profession which is critically underfunded, Carmignac Gestion wishes to provide these key witnesses of the contemporary world with the means to go where others don’t.
