 Free Syrian Army fighter taking up position during clashes in Aleppo Agence France-Presse won several prizes Saturday at the 20th Bayeux-Calvados awards for war correspondents, which this year was dominated by reporting of the Syrian conflict. French daily Le Monde\'s Jean-Philippe Remy won the top print award for his work on the frontline in Damascus, where he documented the use of chemical weapons.
Fabio Bucciarelli, a regular AFP contributor, received the Nikon Photo Award for \"Battle to Death\", a series of striking images taken during fighting in the city of Aleppo in 2012.
The 32-year-old Italian photographer, an engineering graduate, has covered various conflicts including those in Sudan and Mali, as well as Syria.
Also rewarded was AFP freelance photographer Javier Manzano, who won the public\'s prize, for a series of pictures of Syrian rebels fighting in Aleppo last year.
One of his pictures of the rebels had previously earned him a Pulitzer Prize.
AFP\'s Djilali Belaid won a second prize in the video category for a story on the defence by rebels of the Krak des Chevaliers crusader castle.
Away from Syria, the BBC\'s Ben Anderson won a top TV award for his work in Afghanistan\'s Helmand region.
Created in 1994, the Bayeux-Calvados awards recognise reporting on conflicts and their impact on civilians as well as stories covering the defence of freedom and democracy.
Almost 60 different entries were judged this year. The jury was headed by war photography legend James Nachtwey.
