This edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award aims to support an investigative photography project that will highlight the upheavals to the Amazon rainforest and encourage reflection of the consequences of massive deforestation.

In 2009, Fondation Carmignac established the Carmignac Photojournalism Award. Directed by Emeric Glayse, with the aim of funding annually the production of an investigative photo reportage on human rights violations in the world. In each edition, photographers from all over the world are invited to respond to a chosen theme, for the creation of a long-form work of photo-reportage. The Fondation Carmignac chooses a region of the world where turbulences have had repercussions for the planet, or forgotten parts of the world, thereby underlining through this choice to highlight what is unique about the work of photography.
