Waad al-Kateab was named Young Talent of the Year and Camera Operator of the Year at the Royal Television Society Television Journalism Awards 2017. 

The journalist, whose incredible footage of the war-torn city of Aleppo, Syria captured hearts and minds over the past year, received the awards in front of an audience of industry-leading journalists at the awards ceremony in London.

She was also part of the team which received The Independent Award for The Last Flower Seller of Aleppo, and the News Coverage – International Award for Inside Aleppo.

No footage or photographs are available of al-Kateab (an alias she uses) out of concern for her safety.
