War correspondents: Apply now for Bayeux-Calvados Awards

War correspondents and photographers from all over the world are invited to apply for the Bayeux-Calvados Awards, which honour journalists who risk their lives in the world's hot spots to cover the news. The deadline for applications is 8 June 2012.

Entries should be about reporting on a conflict and its impact on civilians, or involve the defence of press freedom and democracy.

The prize carries five cash awards of 7,000 Euros (US$8,900) each in the categories of television, radio, print, photography and web journalism.

A special Young Reporter Prize, worth 3,000 Euros (US$3,800), is also up for grabs for journalists 28 and under.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Bayeux, France, in October.

For more information, see the Bayeux-Calvados Awards website.
