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.
