PARIS – A Journalismfund.eu supported cross-border feature on the militarisation in the Baltics has won the prestigious multimedia journalism prize Prix Philippe Chaffanjon in Paris, France.

"The Sounds of War in the Heart of Europe”, a multimedia long-form by freelance journalist Prune Antoine, Gil Skorwid of Fixers.Press, and photographer Jan Zappner published on Mediapart.fr was one of the two stories awarded with the French Prize. The three journalists are respectively from France, Lithuanian and Germany.

Mathieu Gallet, President and CEO of Radio France, Camille Chaffanjon, Chair of the Philippe Chaffanjon Endowment, and Florence Aubenas, President of the jury greeted the winners in Paris at the “Maison de la Radio”, headquarters of Radio France and the French public radio. Prizes in two categories, French and Haitian multimedia features are awarded each year.  For the 2017 edition of the  Prix Philippe Chaffanjon, sixty French and Haitian applications were submitted. The jury, consisting of distinguished French journalists, selected two stories.

The journalistic research in the Baltics was funded with Journalismfund.eu’s European Cross-border grant. The team of three journalists travelled to Russia’s Kaliningrad, Lithuania, and Poland to understand how and why, since Russia’s invasion into Ukraine, the Eastern Baltic region has fallen into anxiety and paranoia. Their multimedia reportage focused on social tensions and consequences of the militarisation on everyday life in the region. The jury praised the ability of the authors to highlight the essential topics in the current geopolitical context.
