“The French Association des Femmes Journalistes (AFJ) and Canon France are launching, with Images Evidence, the eleventh competition of the Canon Female Photojournalist Award granted by AFJ.  This Award, with support of Le Figaro Magazine, is handed out every year during the Visa pour l’Image – Perpignan Festival in France. It is granted by Canon France and supports with €8,000, a woman photographer with a photojournalistic project.  It is opened to professional women photojournalists of any age and nationality.  The winner will produce an ongoing one year project which will lead to an exhibition or showing at the Festival in the 2012 edition.

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.”
