Camera Justitia

Justice has many faces. Sometimes it may arrive quickly. Sometimes it requires years of struggle. One thing our Camera Justitia programme makes more than clear: justice cannot happen without courage.

The Camera Justitia Award will be awarded by an international jury chaired by Ingrid van Engelshoven and presented during the Award Night on 29 March.

Camera Justitia is made possible by Gemeente Den Haag and vfonds.
