Dedicated to the Arctic and chaired by Jean Jouzel, and under the patronage of Minister Ségolène Royal, French Ambassador for the Arctic and Antarctic Poles, the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award was awarded to Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir Van Lohuizen (NOOR). Their investigative photoreportage «Arctic: New Frontier» is a pioneering double expedition which explores the effects of climate change on the entire Arctic territory. They want to experience the dramatic transformation of natural landscapes and the demographics in the Arctic, and the impact of these changes on the lives of the region’s inhabitants.

With amongst others

  • Kadir Van Lohuizen | Photographer and journalist
  • Bernice Notenboom | Pole traveler
  • Othniel Art Oomittuk Jr | Inupiaq artist

"The photos of Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen are superb. Through them, from Siberia, Svalbard and Greenland to Canada and Alaska, we discover the Arctic of today, with its landscapes and wildlife that are drawing a growing number of tourists, as well as its populations who are exposed to extreme climates and who mine resources such as nickel and, increasingly, gas, oil and coal. Protecting the environment does not appear central to their activity, to put it mildly." —Jean Jouzel, climatologist, winner of the 2012 Vetlesen Award and co-winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Award as Director of the IPCC

The moderator of this event is Saccomani Clément.

SEVENTY YEARS OF SUFFOCATION - Tanya Habjouqa with Amnesty International

2018 marks 70 years since the expulsion and displacement of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes, villages and cities during the one-year conflict that created Israel in 1948. Since then, the Nakba (catastrophe), as it is known in Arabic to Palestinians, has been engraved in Palestinian collective consciousness as a story of relentless dispossession.

We are proud to share this new digital plateform where NOOR's Tanya Habjouqa collaborated together Amnesty International in producing this immersive photo-story on 70 years of Palestinian displacement.

How do photographers present their subjects in a way that ensures dignity, empowerment and inclusion? How do documentary photographers stay focused on issues that raise awareness of the social and political environment and get involved to influence the outcomes of these situations?

Leonard Pongo's long-term project The Uncanny long-term photography project shot in the D.R. Congo will be projected at the International Center of Photography (ICP).

During the day, The Uncanny can be viewed on monitors inside the ICP Museum and during evening hours, images are literally “projected” onto the windows of the ICP Museum; they can be viewed from the sidewalk outside the Museum and are most visible after sunset.
