Camille Lepage Award 2017

The Association named Camille Lepage – On est ensemble was founded on September 20, 2014, only months after the death of the photojournalist Camille Lepage while reporting in the Central African Republic. The Association commemorates Camille, her work and commitment.

The publishing house CDP Editions - Collection des photographes and the l’Association Camille Lepage - On est ensemble have joined forces to create the award to provide encouragement for a photojournalist working on a long-term project.

This year, for the first time, the award is being sponsored jointly by the Société des Auteurs des arts visuels et de l’Image Fixe – Saif and the Association Camille Lepage – On est ensemble with prize money of 8000 euros./p>

This year, the 2017 winner will be presented with the award at the evening show on Thursday, September 7.


The jury, all members being recognized figures in the field of photography and one representative of la Saif, shall grant the Award by judging the professional qualities of the applicants, the photographs submitted, and the relevance and originality of the project.
