Masrat Zahra, a Kashmir-based female photojournalist, has been awarded Anja Niedringhaus Courage In Photojournalism Award 2020, which celebrates the courageous work of women photojournalists, by International Women’s Media Foundation.

Her award citation reads: “…as one of a small group of women photojournalists in the region, Zahra now faces consistent resistance based on her profession and her gender.”

The award was created to honor the life and work of Pulitzer Prize-winning AP photographer and IWMF Courage in Journalism Award winner Anja Niedringhaus (1965-2014). 

In April, Ms. Zahra was booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention (Act) for “social media posts.”

Her citation also notes her work appeared in The Caravan, The Washington Post, TRT World, Al Jazeera, The New Humanitarian, Religion Unplugged and several other media outlets.
