Médecins Sans Frontières

Doctors Without Borders is an international humanitarian medical organization which was set up in Paris in 1971 by doctors and journalists. MSF provides medical aid to populations whose lives or health are threatened, particularly in cases of armed conflicts but also when there are epidemics or natural disasters.
For almost 50 years the organization has been developing its work in the same regions as war correspondents, and shares the same aims – to raise awareness of and highlight the plight of populations suffering the consequences of conflict. From Afghanistan, Rwanda and the Balkans yesterday to Iraq, Central African Republic or Yemen today, MSF is there to treat the suffering and bear witness.
So it follows quite naturally that MSF has now become a partner of the Bayeux award for war correspondents.
Photography has played an important role in the history of MSF. War photographers and photojournalists have been working alongside humanitarian teams for years, capturing the immediacy of events with pictures that reflect personal stories. But behind the immediacy, their work also allows the background history of a region and the suffering of populations affected by conflict, natural disasters or disease to be revealed.

Crédit Agricole Normandie

Crédit Agricole Normandie is a co-operative bank and the leading financial institution in its region, with 748,000 clients. It offers the full range of expertise needed to meet the banking and insurance requirements of individuals, companies and local authorities.
As a player in both economic and social sectors Crédit Agricole Normandie is also involved in major structural projects in the region. As a leading bank it was therefore natural that it should be a partner of the Bayeux award for war correspondents through the Young Reporter award.
We are very proud to be associated with this internationally renowned event which has been enhancing the reputation of our region for more than 20 years. The Bayeux award sheds light on and helps us to decipher current affairs in an increasingly complex world by paying tribute to journalists - who carry out their profession at the risk of their lives - and who ensure the freedom and independence of information, which is fundamental to our democracies.
