For over 20 years the town of Bayeux, in association with the Calvados Department, the Normandy region and its partners, has been hosting a unique event dedicated to an extraordinary group of people: war correspondents. For the week from October 5 to 11, 2020, the town will once again be transformed into a large-scale newsroom, featuring reports by some 350 journalists from around the globe. Leading figures from the world’s most important news organisations join forces with top photographers and reporters in a bid to select the most outstanding works – and to pay tribute to colleagues who lost their lives in the line of duty.
In addition to the award ceremony, the programme includes panel discussions, a book fair, documentary film screenings, the unveiling of a memorial stone at the Reporters’ Memorial, as well as five new exhibitions. Among them is the showcase ‘Imagine: Reflection on Peace’, curated especially for this event by last year’s jury president and co-founder of the VII Photo Agency, Gary Knight.
