Arctic: New Frontier on ARTE Reportage & VPRO Backlight

Arctic: New Frontier, a pioneering double expedition by Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen that explores the effects of climate change on the entire Arctic territory, is now currently available as a documentary on ARTE Reportages, and will be screened by the Dutch broadcaster VPRO Backlight on NPO 2, on March 3rd at 9:05pm.

This project has been awarded the 9th Prix Carmignac for Photojournalism, supported by the Carmignac Foundation.

The 9th Edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award supports an investigative photojournalism report that will shed light on the challenges facing the Arctic and that will highlight the consequences climate change might have on the planet.

In 2009, while media and photojournalism faced an unprecedented crisis, Edouard Carmignac created the Carmignac Photojournalism Award to support photographers in the field. It funds annually the production of an investigative photo reportage on human rights violations, geostrategic and environmental issues in the world.

About the Carmignac Photojournalism Award:
The 9th Edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award supports an investigative photojournalism report that will shed light on the challenges facing the Arctic and that will highlight the consequences climate change might have on the planet.

In 2009, while media and photojournalism faced an unprecedented crisis, Edouard Carmignac created the Carmignac Photojournalism Award to sup- port photographers in the field.

Directed by Emeric Glayse, it funds annually the production of an investigative photo reportage on human rights violations, geostrategic and environmental issues in the world. Selected by an international jury, the laureate receives a grant, enabling them to carry out in-depth research on the ground, with logistical support from Fondation Carmignac. The latter presents a travelling exhibition and the publication of a monograph upon their return. At the end of each edition, four photographs bequeathed by the laureates are included in the Carmignac collection.

About the Fondation Carmignac:
Created in 2000 under the initiative of Édouard Carmignac, Fondation Carmignac is a corporate foundation with two main strands: an art collection of close to 300 works, and the annual Carmignac Photojournalism Award. Villa Carmignac, an exhibition space on Porquerolles Island in Southern France, showcases the collection and hosts a programme of cultural and artistic activities.
