Siddiqui and his partners Adnan Abidi, Sanna Irshad Mattoo and Amit Dave from the Reuters news organization won the honor for “pictures of Covid’s cost in India that decent closeness and annihilation, while offering watchers an increased feeling of spot”. Killed photojournalist Danish Siddiqui is among four Indians regarded with the lofty Pulitzer Prize 2022 in the component photography classification.
Siddiqui and his associates Adnan Abidi, Sanna Irshad Mattoo and Amit Dave from the Reuters news organization won the honor, declared on Monday, for “pictures of Covid’s cost in India that fair closeness and destruction, while offering watchers an uplifted feeling of spot”, as indicated by The Pulitzer Prizes site. Their work was moved from the making it known photography classification by the adjudicators.
Siddiqui, 38, was on task in Afghanistan last year when he passed on. The honor winning columnist was killed in July last while covering conflicts between Afghan soldiers and the Taliban in Spin Boldak region of Kandahar city.
This is for the second time that Siddiqui has won the Pulitzer Prize. He was regarded with the renowned honor in 2018 as a component of the Reuters group for their inclusion of the Rohingya emergency. He had broadly covered the Afghanistan struggle, the Hong Kong fights and other significant occasions in Asia, Middle East, and Europe.
Siddiqui graduated with a degree in Economics from Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi. He had a degree in Mass Communication from the AJK Mass Communication Research Center at Jamia in 2007.
