With over a century of existence and by virtue of its values and commitment, supporting photojournalists is part of Nikon’s DNA.In the framework of the Bayeux award for war correspondents, the brand offers to pay for 12 participants for the training "REPORT IN DANGEROUS ZONES" of the Manoir created by France Médias Monde.In association with INA (the French national audiovisual archive) and with the support of Reporters without borders, the Manoir will soon have trained almost 360 reporters and information technicians and collaborates with many media like Le Monde newspaper, Arte, Canal + and the French public television channels, among others. The training provided by the Manoir is now recognised as the reference standard in its field.


While it is obvious that research and information-sharing are essential, the safety of journalists on assignment has to be both the primary concern and the starting point in the editorial process.
Because the journalist is the principal player in his or her own safety, the Manoir provides specific training and methodologies given by journalists to journalists, and brings in leading experts in the fields of health, emergency rescue and psychology.
The effects of weapons, the dangers of mines and orientation skills are also taught by expert practitioners who are experienced in training news professionals.
By the end of the training course, the journalist situated in a danger zone is able to assess risks more accurately, to understand critical situations and to react more adroitly to accidents in the field.
By partnering with the Manoir, Nikon wants to support talented young photojournalists in the exercise of their profession by giving them the best possible training.

To apply, candidates must send their entry, including a CV, a motivation letter and one or more productions of a photo report produced in dangerous zones, to securite.academie@francemm.com before August 30, 2020.
