The mission of the association, which relies on donations and proceeds from the sale of their photographs, is to perpetuate and disseminate this photographic legacy as well as to assist photojournalists struggling with the economic hardships associated with this profession.
Types of assistance offered by the organisation:
In order to to assist photojournalists struggling with the economic hardships associated with this profession, the Association is promoting an annual Grant of 8,000 euros, endowed by LaScam (collective society for multimedia authors). The award is presented to a professional photographer of any age, sex or nationality who wishes to cover a social, economic, political or cultural issue in a journalistic manner, on presentation of a dossier. The Award is given in order to allow the winner to produce a story that has never been told but that the photographer cannot find support for within the media.
