Photography Award

What is the Yves Rocher Foundation Photography Award?

 

In partnership with the International Festival of Journalism “Visa pour l’Image-Perpignan”, the Yves Rocher Foundation decided to create the Yves Rocher Foundation Photography Award.

The Yves Rocher Foundation Photography Award is presented to a professional photographer who wishes to engage in journalistic work on environmental issues, relations between humanity and the planet, or key issues in sustainable development.

The €8,000 Award is funded by the Yves Rocher Foundation. It will be presented every year as part of the “Visa pour l’Image Festival” in the month of September.
