The French Association des Femmes Journalistes (AFJ) and Canon France are launching, with Images Evidence, the thirteenth competition of the Canon Female Photojournalist Award granted by the Association des femmes Journalistes (AFJ).

This Award, with support of Le Figaro Magazine, is handed out every year during the Visa pour l’Image Festival in Perpignan (France). It is granted by Canon France and supports with 8000 Euros a woman photographer with a photojournalistic project. It is opened to professional women photojournalists of any age and nationality. 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.

The Award will be handed to the winner in Perpignan on September 2013, during one of the showing nights of the Visa pour l’Image – Perpignan Festival. The winner will produce an ongoing one year project which will lead to an exhibition or showing at the Festival in the 2014 edition.
