War And Disaster Take Center Stage In Photo Fest

The annual Visa pour L’Image International Festival of Photojournalism will be held from September 2 to 17 in the city of Perpignan, south of France, with war and disaster reflected in the festival’s photo exhibits and slideshows.

Scheduled for exhibition are a retrospective on the 30th anniversary of Contact Press Images, a look at the career of Magnum Photos’ Elliott Erwitt, Todd Heisler’s Pulitzer Prize-winning work on military deaths in Iraq for the Rocky Mountain News, Reuters’ coverage of the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan and a collection of photos of post-Katrina New Orleans.

The photojournalism festival will also honor outstanding photographers with the Visa d’Or Awards, six prizes in the categories of daily press, magazine and news.

The winners will be announced on the nights of Sept. 7, 8 and 9.
