23rd edition of the Bayeux-Calvados Award : results

Fifty war correspondents have gathered in Bayeux on October 7th and 8th to debate and award trophies in the following categories: photo, print, radio, television, grand format television, young reporter (photo), web journalism 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 Jean-Claude Guillebaud, the international jury of the 23rd edition of the Bayeux-Calvados Award for war correspondents has reached its verdict…

“Since I was part of the jury that selected this year’s nominees, I was aware that the choice of the international jury would be a particularly difficult one in the light of the quality of the articles and reports in competition. The final result is absolutely astounding. I am all the more appreciative of this award given that it rewards war correspondents of all media. The Bayeux-Calvados Award for war correspondents offers a panoramic view of our profession. And this is what makes this award so unique and precious.”
Jean-Claude Guillebaud

The wandering refugees across Europe

In 2015, they were more than a million seeking shelter in Europe, forced out of their homes by conflict and persecution; mostly from Syria and Irak, but also from the Horn of Africa, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
For this open-air exhibition in the center of the city, the AFP photographers tell their journey, and sometimes their woes.

The sound of War

À travers l’immersion dans les ambiances sonores de d’Irak, d’Iran, de Gaza, de Libye, de Centrafrique, l’exposition veut stimuler l’imaginaire et nous forcer à convoquer nos propres images.
Au fil de la scénographie, il retrace aussi l’élaboration d’un reportage, de la matière brute du tournage à la diffusion.
Il raconte enfin l’évolution des outils techniques depuis 30 ans, et leur impact sur la prise de son et les conditions de tournage.

Reporter’s Memorial : Unveiling of the stele of 2016

In 2005, the city of Bayeux inaugurated the Reporters Memorial ;
Ten years later, more then 800 names have been engraved on it. 110 for 2015 alone.

Missing journalists relatives – among them Claudine Kent, companion of David Gilkey murdered in Afghanistan ; Maryvonne Lepage, mother of Camille Lepage, murdered in Central Africa, Deo Namujimbo, or Elena Milachina, friend and coworker of Anna Politkoskaïa and Boshra Nerj, friend of the syrian journalist Naji Jerf, joined this year's ceremony.


Refugees across Europe

Migrants wait under an heavy rain, outside the Moria registration camp, on October 23, 2015, on the Lesbos island. Many Syrian families with small children are currently forced to walk a distance longer than the Athens Marathon from the beaches where they land to the points of registration near the port capital of Mytilene. Buses provided by local authorities and rides by volunteers do not suffice, especially as many refugees continue to land at night. Over 400,000 people have landed on Greek islands from neighbouring Turkey since the beginning of the year, most of them fleeing the civil war in Syria.

Collective exhibitions of AFP photojournalists

Since the summer of 2015, Europe is facing an unprecedented flood of migrants. Waves of refugees, mainly from Syria, Iraq, but also from the Horne of Africa, Afghanistan and Pakistan, arrive at the doors of Europe with the hope of finding a better life.
According to The United Nations more than a million of refugees have reached the European Union in 2015 and some 260.000 during the first six months of the year 2016 alone.

The AFP follows the journey of migrants through Europe from June 2015 to July 2016. The geographical localization of these images enables the visitor to follow their path across the continent.

The visitor can also browse through multimedia content, displayed as flashcodes and accessible via smartphones.

Gilles Caron : photographs of war

Gilles Caron

The Gill Caron foundation presents a selection of war photographs taken by war correspondent Gilles Caron. This event is realized parallel to the inauguration of the brand new stele dedicated to reporters whose bodies have yet to be found, and Gilles Caron in particular.

30 year old journalist who went missing in Cambodia on April 5, 1970, Gilles Caron had a growing career and left behind a collection of 700 reports. Thanks to his first war report entitled “Six Jours”, his agency GAMMA, ranked in the top media agency in the world for the year 1967. In 1970, he became a prisoner in Chad; he followed the May 1968 events in France and worked all over the world following the conflicts in Prague, Biafra, Cambodia and Vietnam. 50 years later, his work has the exact same intensity. Gifted with elegance, he knew how to shape symbolic and powerful images and became a significant actor of photography.

Recruited in Algeria during his military service, Gilles Caron is soon disgusted by the atrocities of the war. After careful consideration – as revealed by his personal letters – he takes the decision to desert the army. Since then, his gaze is entirely focused of the people: population or military personnel in their daily life. Without excess or tricks, the major events he works on illustrate a large range of conflicts in the twentieth century: civil wars, blitz, hunger…. Despite the risks he faced, he testified of the violence in the world.

Gaza, the aftermath

GazaBeitHanoun-002

From July 2014 to February 2016, the Belgian photojournalist Virginie Nguyen Hoang went to Gaza five times.

She was there during the Summer 2014 War and decided to return to Gaza in order to relate the reconstruction of Gaza through the daily life of four families.

The conflict between the Israeli army and forces of Hamas and the Islamic Jihad in Gaza were responsible for 2.502 Palestinian deaths and 71 for Israel, including 66 soldiers. Among the Palestinian victims, 1.583 were civilians, 521 children and 283 women (According to the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs).

Since the cease-fire, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimates that 100.000 civilians have been displaced from the Gaza Strip, including 28.000 who have sought refuge in UNRWA schools that have been transformed into shelters. Others found asylum with families or friends, or they simply went back to live in the ruins of their own homes with the hope to obtain financial help.

Virginie Nguyen Hoang got involved in the daily life of four families in order to visually report their life and their fight to rediscover a peaceful life.

Nota Roja

Acapulco, Guerrero a 15 de Agosto de 2012 Por la noche, a las 22 horas, un asesinado en la colonia Zapata entre los 15 y 18 años, fue asesinado entre las calles 18 y 33 donde dejaron un mensaje escrito. Al lugar acudieron elementos del Ejército mexicano y elementos ministeriales quienes realizaron las investigaciones de ley. Casi a la misma hora se reportaron cuatro calcinados en Barra Vieja se desconocen los hechos. Fotos: Bernandino Hernández

Acapulco, in the Guerrero province of Mexico was far from the coastal city enjoyed by American jet-setters in the 50s and 60s.
However, it was still a holiday destination of choice for many a few years ago. In proportion to the number of inhabitants, Acapulco is considered today as the most dangerous city in the country. 1.300 murders have been committed there over the past year. Five to six murders are committed each day.
Some forty gangs are fighting to take over control of the racketing and the barrios, the neighborhoods. The army and the police can barely contain the situation and an important numbers of neighborhoods are just off limit to them.
The photographs were taken by Bernandino Hernandez, an orphan, who arrived at Acapulco at the age of 3.

They shine a light on this war that dares not speak its name.
His work falls within the Mexican tradition of the Nota Roja, a literary journalistic genre highly popular at the beginning of the century whose origin is linked to the Mexican inquisition. Hernandez has documented both the transformation of his city and his own condition without ever being exposed or recognized.

The completion and singularity of his work over the last few years have yet to find a match.

Rwanda : mauvais souvenir

Free entry for the screeningScreenings takes place at la Halle aux Grains - 66, rue Saint-Jean

Rwanda

In Rwanda, they have long been rejected. The children born from rape during the 1994 genocide.

They are no less than twenty thousand. Today, in their twenties, they learn to live with this dreadful heritage. Spicee met with Dyvine, Hillary, Arthur, Emmerance… They just became adults and still have questions regarding their origin. Only now, do they have the strength to talk about their stories, and this painful feeling of illegitimacy they face in the Rwandan society. These children called "Painful memories", are nonetheless the symbol of a great promise: the reconciliation between Hutus and Tutsis. What if they were the future of Rwanda?

The Boat People of the Deep Blue Sea

boatpeople-edourd-elias

Since February 25th, a characteristic vessel cruises off the coast of Libya: the Aquarius, a civil lifeboat.

Across its flank, bold black letters are visible from afar: SOS Méditerrannée. This is the name of the NGO who sent it. A young European NGO created in May 2015 by the Captain of the German Merchant Navy, with a sole objective: to save lives. His characteristic: his total independence from a government and the European Union.

The refugees rescued by the Aquarius are known as boat people. They fled their country, south of the Sahara, in order to flee wars or poverty. Today, as they embark on inflatable dinghy made in China, barely able to float in a swimming pool, they are focused on one thing only: saving their life.

In Libya, being black is a nightmare: death is everywhere, so are kidnappings, extortions and incarcerations in revolting living conditions. Rape, hunger, fear and shootouts are also common practices.

By rescuing the boat people, listening and taking their picture, we bear witness to their ordeal and give them a voice to be heard beyond the walls that Europe is building.
