France's Bayeux Calvados prize: Rewarding war reporters
Issued on: Modified:
This week, we're coming to you from the French town of Bayeux, in the Calvados department of Normandy. It was the first major town to be liberated by the Allies in 1944 following the D-Day landings. That wartime heritage continues today as it is also home to the Bayeux Calvados-Normandy Award, a prestigious series of prizes recognising excellence in war reporting. To tell us more, we’re joined by Le Monde journalist and editor Rémy Ourdan, who won the correspondents' prize here in 2000 and 2012.
