Sponsorship at Canon

Our sponsorship and partnership activities across EMEA span a range of social, cultural and sporting activities that support our Business and Corporate Social Responsibility objectives. Through these activities, we strive to contribute our imaging expertise and broad product portfolio to make a difference within society.

World Press Photo
Canon has been supporting World Press Photo for 26 years and for 25 of those years, we have sponsored the Joop Swart Masterclass to identify talented visual storytellers. We also provide opportunities for one-year ambassadorships for those who have the ability to tell the strongest stories to affect a change.
Visa pour l’image
Canon has been supporting Visa pour l’image, one of the world’s leading photojournalism festivals, for the last 29 years. We provide week-long training courses for media students across Europe, to train them in expressing their stories, covering everything from conflict and nature to people and the environment.

When considering the many sponsorship proposals that Canon Europe receives, we use the following criteria to help us decide whether we enter into a partnership:

  • We do not sponsor individuals or teams. This includes bloggers, vloggers and any travel projects where the individual seeks a free product in exchange for promotion
  • Visit the Canon Pro site for more information on the Canon Ambassador programme
  • The event/activity must be a pan-European project. For local activities, please contact the relevant Canon office
  • The event/activity cannot have any religious associations, political connections, or be associated with warfare of any kind
  • Any event/activity we consider must support our sustainability objectives


If your event or activity fits the criteria listed above and you would like your proposal to be considered for sponsorship, please complete the form below. Please be aware that much of our sponsorship strategy is fulfilled by our ongoing partnerships and that budgets for additional opportunities are very limited. We regret that, due to the very high number of enquiries we receive, we are not always able to respond personally to all requests. If your proposal is successful, you will be contacted within 60 days of receipt of your application.

To apply for sponsorship, please fill in the form and one of the team will be in touch with you
