ICRC Visa d'Or photojournalism award - Submit your work

The ICRC in Paris will award the 2nd Humanitarian Visa d'Or photojournalism prize at this year's Visa pour l'image, an international photojournalism festival held every September in Perpignan, France.

The € 8,000 award is open to professional photojournalists whose work highlights violence committed against the wounded and/or medical personnel in situations of violence or armed conflict.

The first Visa d'Or was awarded to Catalina Martin-Chico in recognition of her reporting on the difficulties faced by medical staff in Yemen during confrontations between the government and protesters in 2011.

The deadline for submissions is May 31st, 2012.

Contact my colleague Fred Joli at par_visapourlimage@icrc.org for more information.
