The International Center for Journalism (ICFJ) awarded Afghan journalist Anisa Shaheed the Knight International Journalist Award 2022.

An international journalist award was also given to a group of Ukrainian journalists for reporting and documenting “horrific” images of the Mariupol siege. As Russian bombs poured down on Mariupol, the Ukrainian team reporting for the Associated Press stayed in the city to show the world what was going on.

For her research article on resource management during the Covid-19 crisis, Anisa Shaheed was selected the winner of the annual International Journalism Awards.

Last year, Anisa Shaheed was also recognized as “The Face of Freedom of Speech” by Free Speech Hub and was awarded the best journalist of the year.

Anisa Shaheed was born and educated in Kabul. She received a journalism degree from Kabul University and has worked in the field ever since.

Shaheed was one of the TOLONews reporters who has been with the organization since the inception and has worked in a variety of capacities.

She was compelled to evacuate alongside many of her colleagues and other residents when the Taliban reappeared in 2021, reversing women’s rights and threatening journalists with death.
