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.

noor-nikon academy upcoming workshops

 

NOOR Foundation and Nikon are excited to announce our 2017 educational program - the NOOR-Nikon Academy. Early this spring, the NOOR-Nikon Academy will launch with a series of free-of-charge workshops for young, aspiring documentary photographers taking place in The Netherlands, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

 

During each of the four-day trainings, 15 participants, together with three NOOR member photographers will share experiences, work on portfolios, improve editing skills and learn how to develop visual stories.

Participants can get the most out of the experience when they come to the workshop with a body of work they are currently developing, editing, working on and/or thinking about how to share with audiences. Thus, applicants are encouraged to include this work and indicate what they want to explore in relation to the work in their application portfolio and motivation statement.

Participants can look forward to intensive communication with NOOR photographers and their peers on subjects ranging from how to develop and edit a photographic story or project, to the nuances of the international photo market.

 

 

The NOOR-Nikon Academy is a unique opportunity to learn impactful visual storytelling, further develop personal vision, strengthen ongoing projects and gain new knowledge and contacts in an intimate and interactive environment.

 

Each workshop is led by a diverse and unique combination of three NOOR member photographers. All experienced teachers and lecturers, NOOR photographers are actively engaged in their own documentary practices, current debates in the field and in the development of the next generation of photographic talent.

 

 

Since 2009 NOOR and Nikon have partnered on education programs encouraging and supporting young photographic talent around the world.

Reactions from previous NOOR-Nikon educational programs:

 

“Photography is part education and part evolution of one’s talent. This was my first workshop and it was an enriching experience. I learned more in these days than probably I could have learned in a year working in the field.”

 

   - Bogdan Chesaru, Romania (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Bucharest, Romania)

 

“The workshop was fantastic! Meeting with NOOR photographers and very talented people from our region is a great opportunity. You should continue organizing programs for regional cooperation among young photographers. I got great tips about storytelling, editing, grants and bookmaking!”

 

   - Ozge Sebzeci, Turkey (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Istanbul, Turkey)
