With a history spanning more than a century and its strong values and commitment, Nikon’s support of photojournalism as a partner of the Prix Bayeux is part of its DNA.

Nikon is proud to have been supporting the Prix Bayeux for the last 13 years with a variety of initiatives:• Sponsoring the Nikon Prize (photo category), awarded as part of the awards ceremony evening,• Supporting a major outdoor exhibition in the streets of Bayeux,• Contributing to the “15-year Olds’ Perspective” scheme designed to raise awareness of images and current affairs among middle-school students.

This year Nikon will be launching a new initiative, the Nikon Encounters, which will be held on Friday 8 October 2021 in Bayeux and on the brand’s social media networks. They will include masterclasses with major names in photojournalism, talented young photographers talking about their own experiences in dangerous regions, looking at portfolios and live interviews: all these events are intended to give the public an opportunity to get to know about and exchange with these outstanding eyewitnesses of current events.
