Panos photographer Minzayar Oo is awarded Martin Adler Prize by the Rory Peck Trust

At this year’s annual Rory Peck Awards, held at London’s Saddler’s Wells Theatre, Panos photographer Minzayar Oo was awarded the prestigious Martin Adler Prize.

The award “honours a local freelancer who has made a significant contribution to news-gathering, either through a single story or body of work, but who is largely un-recognised by the international news media”. It was set up in memory of Martin Adler, a Swedish photographer and cameraman who worked with Panos Pictures throughout the 1990s and early 2000s and was tragically murdered in Somalia in 2006.

Press Release: Burmese photographers allowed to leave Bangladesh

* After 40 days, Minzayar Oo and Hkun Lat were allowed to leave Dhaka on 17 October 2017.

* Worldwide support for their release

The two Burmese photographers who had been held in Bangladesh since September 7th were finally allowed to leave the country on Monday, 17 October. Although the case against them has not yet been officially dropped, in-country sources confirm that this will happen in the next few days.

The pair were detained on September 7th in Cox’s Bazar and released on bail on September 22nd. Since then they had been stuck in Dhaka without official permission to leave the country.

London-based photo agency Panos Pictures and German GEO magazine thank the government of Bangladesh for its generous gesture in allowing Messrs Oo and Lat to leave the country. They also wish to thank their international network of supporters, including many human rights organisations and freedom of expression advocates, who took up the photographers’ cause. Adrian Evans, Director of Panos Pictures, and Christoph Kucklick. Editor-in-chief of GEO Magazine, responded to the event stating that, “it is wonderful to see how quickly a powerful global community comes together to help journalists in need and defend the principles of freedom of the press.”

“It was hard work to get Minzayar Oo and Hkun Lat released,” adds Christoph Kucklick. “The admirable effort of many partners in Bangladesh, both inside and outside the government, made this positive outcome possible. I want to thank all friends in Dhaka for their dedication and their selfless support.”
