The Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award is back for its third edition, offering photographers a chance to win a €50,000 grant to develop a project in Zimbabwe

The Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Awardwas created two years ago to help fund a photojournalism report “on a proposed topic directly related to current affairs, over several months.” It has been designed to allow photographers to “continue visiting zones that are neglected by the mainstream media outside of periods of conflict.”

This year, the Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award is looking for projects made in Zimbabwe or relating to the South African country. Entries will be judged by a panel chaired by Magnum Photos member Susan Meiselas.

The jury also includes Massimo Berruti, who won the 2010 editon of the Carmignac Gestion Award, as well as Christian Caujolle of Agence VU’. Sophie Bouillon, Philippe Guionie, Françoise Huguier, Yacoubé Konaté, Alessandra Mauro and Patrick de Saint Exupéry complete the panel.

Deadline for entry is 30 September.
