Canon to support visual journalists with two grants

Photography Solutions

Canon Europe has announced two grants to support long term documentary projects both in the photography and filmmaking space. Championing the very best in storytelling, the Canon Female Photojournalist Grant celebrates an outstanding photographer in recognition of her contribution to photojournalism; whilst the Canon Video Grant acknowledges those wanting to magnify a social, cultural or economic issue in documentary form. The grants are open to individuals worldwide. 


Canon Female Photojournalist Grant 

For the 24th year in a row, Canon and Visa pour l’Image will award an €8000 grant to a female photojournalist pursuing a long term documentary project. The grant is designed to either support the completion of an existing project or facilitate the making of a new one. Entries will be judged by a jury of renowned industry experts.


Canon Video Grant 

Alongside this, Canon together with Visa pour l’Image are seeking documentary filmmakers for the Fifth Canon Video Grant. In 2023, Juan Vicente Manrique Gomez was awarded for his project ‘Looking For A Donkey’, a satirical view on the violation of freedom of expression by the Venezuelan regime. The grant winner will receive €8000, along with a loan of video kit including a Canon video camera and two lenses to make a short documentary of approximately eight minutes in length. 


The winning projects of 2024 will be presented at next year’s Visa pour l’Image festival in Perpignan, France.
