The journalists won an award, launched by the ICRC last April, for stories written on humanitarian subjects.

The first prize was shared by two journalists: Tala Ayoub from Al-Rai Newspaper and Ikhlas Al-Qadi from Ammon News. Two journalists also shared the second prize; Ola Abdel-Latif from Al-Ghad News, and Razan Al-Majali from Al-Rai Newspaper, according to an ICRC statement released Tuesday.

The Humanitarian Awards was launched in April this year for entries on stories and photos published between June 2020 and September 7, 2021 under two categories: the best story on a humanitarian subject and the best photograph on a humanitarian subject.

However, the jury panel concluded that there were no winners in the photo category, as the entries submitted did not meet prescribed standards.
