    The 13th edition of the ICRC’s Humanitarian Visa d’Or award

    Created in 2011, the Humanitarian Visa d’or is a photojournalism prize awarded once a year by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to a professional photojournalist who has covered a humanitarian issue related to armed conflict or other violence.

    The 8,000-euro prize has two purposes: to recognize the work of a photojournalist covering an armed conflict or other situation of violence, and to promote the fundamental principles of international humanitarian law. Federico Rios Escobar will officially receive his award on 6 September in Perpignan during the 35th edition of the Visa pour l’Image, a prestigious international photojournalism festival. His work will be exhibited there from 2 to 17 September 2023, before moving on to Paris.
