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
