Since the year 2000, the Association des Femmes Journalistes and Canon France, in partnership with the international Visa pour l’Image festival, and with the support of Figaro Magazine, have awarded an annual prize for women photojournalists. Women photojournalists worldwide are welcome to enter the competition, for which there is no age limit. The 8,000-euro award enables the winners to finance their projects and have their work exhibited at the festival in Perpignan and later in Paris at the Cosmos Galery.

Prizes: Win an award of 8000 Euros, endowed by Canon France

She also agrees to let the AFJ and/or Canon France present her photographs financed with the award, for an exhibition of the works of the award winners, and the publication of a catalogue, whatever the period.
