Speaking about his win, Victor Lacken noted that it has “motivated me to seek new challenges in photojournalism and I expect it will inspire other photographers to tell their stories.” Holly Young said winning the reporting award has “given me more confidence to pursue stories that I really believe in”.The AidEx Humanitarian & Development Journalism Award is run in partnership with NRS International, a leading international manufacturer of innovative products for the humanitarian aid, public health and development sectors.The award will be conferred in-person at the AidEx Brussels exhibition and conference on 17 November 2016 and will recognise exceptional work in the following two categories:
