Emeric Glayse was appointed Director of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award (Prix Carmignac du photojournalisme) in 2015.
Since joining the Fondation Carmignac, he has organized the exhibitions and published the books Blank pages of an Iranian photo album by Newsha Tavakolian (Magnum Photos, 2015), Colony by Christophe Gin (2015), Libya: A human marketplace by Narciso Contreras (2016), The Trap: Trafficking of Women in Nepal by Lizzie Sadin (2017), and Arctic: New Frontier by Kadir van Lohuizen & Yuri Kozyrev (NOOR, 2018) and he curated the Photojournalism Award Retrospective 2009-2015 at Saatchi Gallery (2016) - the most visited photojournalism exhibition in 2016 (Source: The Art Newspaper).
In 3 years, Glayse has transformed the Award to turn it into an “editorial room”. These developments have made possible for Narciso Contreras, 7th laureate, to bring back the first proofs of migrant slavery in Libya – published in Paris Match and Time Magazine in October 2016. By involving new museum partners edition after edition – Palazzo Reale in Milan, Fotografie Forum in Frankfurt, Cité des sciences et de l'industrie in Paris, ... – he has internationalized the Award exhibition which, since 2017, attracts over 500,000 visitors.
