Freelancers from Iraq, Pakistan and Syria win Rory Peck Awards 2015

The Rory Peck Award for News, was won by 27 year old Syrian freelancer, Zein Al-Rifai, for his coverage of the on-going conflict in his home city of Aleppo. Aleppo: Life in Ruins, commissioned and broadcast by AFPTV and shot between June 2014 and February 2015, shows the consequences of the almost daily barrel-bombing and the day-to-day reality of peoples' lives in the rebel-held area of the city. Judges said Zein's impactful footage, whilst showing injuries, death and grief  never loses sight of the humanity of what makes people continue to soldier on in the worst of circumstances.  The award was presented by BBC Chief International Correspondent, Lyse Doucet.
