First french town liberated on 7th June 1944, Bayeux created in 1994 this award, a tribute to war correspondents who, at the risk of their lives, open for us a window on the world. During the week: exhibitions, public screenings, book fairs and debates. With many journalists present, the closing evening talks about the burning issues of the moment and finishes with the prize-giving ceremony.
