Fifty war correspondents have gathered in Bayeux on October 6th and 7th to debate and award trophies in the following categories: photo, print, radio, television, grand format television, young reporter (print) and video image. Three honorary awards have been attributed: the Regional prize for students and trainees of Normandy (television), the Public’s Choice award (photo) and the Ouest-France – Jean Marin prize (print). Presided by Jeremy Bowen, the international jury of the 24th edition of the Bayeux-Calvados Award for war correspondents has reached its verdict…

“It’s been a great honor to be president of the jury. I’ve really enjoyed it, as well as working with my French colleagues.
I’m very impressed by the standard of the entries, dominated by Iraq and Syria, which was very high. I think it shows that journalism is in a good state, a good position. The final choice, made by the jury composed of very experienced journalists, was the right one. It shows that there are some very brave, skillful and honest journalists who are working in some of the world’s most dangerous places. They are shining a light into the dark corners of the world and that is a very important thing to do.” Jeremy Bowen
