Four years since the fall of the Gaddafi regime in October 2011, Libya is experiencing an unprecedented political, military and humanitarian crisis. While negotiations for a national unity agreement have taken place since early 2015 between the various political entities claiming power, heavy fighting between rival militias and factions continues to break out in the country on a daily basis. The surge of hope that followed the revolution has now given way to chaos.
Representing the dramatic and complex reality in the region has become an increasingly challenging task. The Carmignac Photojournalism Award has resolved to support a photojournalist in the implementation, production and dissemination of an in-depth project on this country from which we now receive little to no images.
A key aim of the Award is to support the winning photojournalist by providing a global platform for their work to be seen and collected. The Carmignac Foundation collaborates with the winner throughout the entire project by offering the laureate to go into the field, financing a monograph and developing and staging an international touring exhibition upon their return. The Carmignac Foundation also commits to purchasing four photographs from the winner’s portfolio, which then enter Carmignac’s prestigious art collection.
Open to photojournalist woldwide.
