“Photojournalists have less than two weeks left to enter the third edition of the Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award, which comes with a €50,000 grant.
The Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award was created two years ago to help fund a photojournalism report “on a proposed topic directly related to current affairs, over several months.” It has been designed to allow photographers to “continue visiting zones that are neglected by the mainstream media outside of periods of conflict,” while celebrating the photographers’ “courage, audacity, freedom and determination,” according to Edouard Carmignac.
Each year, one region of the world is chosen as the focus of the Prix Carmignac Gestion. In 2009 and 2010, the prize went to photographers who focused on Palestine and Afghanistan. This year, the Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award is looking for projects made in Zimbabwe or relating to the South African country. Entries will be judged by a panel chaired by Magnum Photos member Susan Meiselas.” Author: Olivier Laurent in the BJP....more

And that might be Nikon 1’s most important feature, setting it apart from the other camera manufacturers that have entered the mirrorless camera market more than three years ago now.” Author: Olivier Laurent at The BJP
“You just press the shutter once and, utilising the pre and post capture technology, the camera starts to take the pictures before you’ve even fully depressed the button.” The camera then automatically selects the best five shots, which are saved based on facial expression, composition and focus.” Do we need cameras that decide which expression is best?
