Ladies and Gentlemen,
Prix Charles Ritz 2018 is awarded to :
The Albanais fishing association, on the Chéran river, in Haute Savoie (74), Alps.
The choice between our short list of 3 candidates inc. river Sioule near Clermont Ferrand and river Léguer in Brittany was very tight and only after a long conversation did the jury come up with a decision under the presidency of film director Philippe Laforge.
No doubt we will hear from the latter next year.
We want to thank & congratulate the winner & runner ups, for their thoroughly broad dossiers, and their drive to restore & protect their rivers.
We cannot wait to catch up with you on Nov. 7. in Paris at the Travellers Club for the award celebration
A teaser about the film on the Prix winners will be shown that night. Director Philippe Laforge currently gathers the last interviews of our members worldwide about the rivers displayed, viz, la Loue, la Lesse, le Tarn, la Corrèze, Le Sarthon, la Thur.
