For the 25th edition, the Ouest-France newspaper, the town of Bayeux, the Département of Calvados, the Normandy region and the Normandy Board of Education will be organizing an exceptional educational project aimed at students in Normandy aged 15 and up - “Ouest-France Encounters: Forgotten Conflicts which have shaped our World”.

As a long-term partner of the Prix Bayeux, for this anniversary edition Ouest-France wanted to give young people an opportunity to look back over 25 years of conflicts based on the reporting of senior correspondents who have won awards at the Prix Bayeux, and covering Rwanda, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia. In contrast with the immediacy of news today, Ouest-France will enable students to re-visit events from history and to take a considered look at these now forgotten conflicts.
