Camille Lepage Award

Visa pour l’image – Camille Lepage Award

One of the goals of the association is also to promote the memory, the work and the commitment of Camille Lepage.
The Camille Lepage Image Visa allows you to go directly into action on this site. For several years, the SAIF (Société des Auteurs des Arts visuels de l’image Fixe) has been funding the prize to the tune of 8,000 euros. Behind this award is the desire to encourage the work of a long-term photojournalist.
