Pajhwok staffer wins best photojournalist award
KABUL (Pajhwok): Pajhwok Afghan News staffer Fayyaz Umari has won the best photojournalist award of the year from an independent media support organisation.
NAI presents awards to media professionals in different categories every year. Umari was adjudged the best photographer this year and presented with the coveted prize.
NAI Executive Director MujibKhilwatgar told reporters they had asked media outlets a month ago to dispatch their best works. On the bases of that, winners were selected.
While assuring of transparency in the process of choosing winners, he said the competition was purely based on merit -- not part of any project.
Aryana TV reporter Ahmad Furshad Saleh won the best reporter award and Zainab Aziz of Arzo TV was given the best presenter award.
