Al-Emrun Garjon

Marcel Mettelsiefen

Title: Agony in Aleppo

Marcel has been to Syria many times over the past two years but this was his first trip to Aleppo. He captured a devastating report on the plight of people trying to carry on with their lives in a hopelessly battered and broken city.

Aris Roussinos

Title: Ground Zero Mali: The Battle of Gao

Aris filmed dramatic street-by-street battle footage from Gao, in northern Mali, as soldiers attempt to storm buildings held by Mujao Islamist fighters. It is a rare piece of combat footage to come out of the war there.
