Kashmiri photojournalist wins Mackler prize

NEW YORK: Kashmiri photojournalist Masrat Zahra on Thursday received the Peter Mackler prize for courageous and ethical journalism, for her coverage of women impacted by decades of unrest in Indian-occupied Kashmir.

“To work in this industry is to bring the truth,” the 26-year-old journalist said during a virtual ceremony.

Zahra’s work shines a light on the stories of women who would otherwise likely be forgotten in deeply patriarchal South Asia.
