The International Centre for Journalists (ICFJ) recognised Obaid-Chinoy’s decades-long career, which led to a legislative change in her home country of Pakistan.
“I began writing for newspapers in Pakistan when I was 14 years old and produced my first documentary film at the age of 21. Throughout my career I have strived to investigate stories that make people deeply uncomfortable, in the hope that they will spark conversations that will eventually lead to changes in attitudes,” said Obaid-Chinoy.
A two-time Oscar winner, she is best known for her 2015 documentary A Girl in the River, which took on the issue of honour killings in Pakistan and led parliament to pass a law criminalising honour killings.
Karam Al-Masri will be honoured for his work in photographing war-torn Aleppo.
The Knight International Journalism Award recognises media professionals who are passionate about outstanding reporting that makes a difference.
“At great personal risk, Obaid-Chinoy and Al Masri faced terrorism head-on, getting behind the scenes to chronicle untold abuses,” said ICFJ President Joyce Barnathan, in a statement.
