Visa pour l’Image is one of the world’s leading photojournalism festivals, an event in which the world’s most important stories and those responsible for telling them are brought together and celebrated.
Now in its 29th year, and once again taking place in the stunning French city of Perpignan, the festival features more than 20 public exhibitions of the work of top photographers from across the globe, and covers everything from conflict and nature to people and the environment.
There will also be a number of evening film screenings, focusing on a variety of pressing current affairs – these will take place at the open air medieval enclosure of the Campo Santo, a suitably dramatic setting to showcase some of the world’s most thought-provoking film making.
Elsewhere, Visa pour l’Image offers visitors the chance to take part in a multitude of symposiums and conferences on the issues affecting photojournalism and photojournalists, as well as networking opportunities with leading photo agencies and image brands.
At the Canon stand, located in the Palais des congrès, there will be the option to get hands on with the latest Canon cameras and lenses, attend workshops run by members of our Ambassador programme, have your Canon camera serviced, get a professional portrait shot and speak to the slew of technical experts we’ll have on stand.
