Al Jazeera's Hamish MacDonald has been named Young Journalist of the Year at the Royal Television Society awards in London.
MacDonald, 26, beat colleague Haru Mutasa as well as Channel 4's Nima Elbagir to clinch the award on Wednesday.
Judges commended the Kuala Lumpur-based journalist for his confidence and style, highlighting his work covering street protests in Malaysia.
They also looked at his coverage of the conflicts in Afghanistan and East Timor in awarding him the prize.
Al Jazeera English, on air since November 2006, was also nominated in the News Channel of the Year and International News categories.
The society's awards seek to recognise "creative and excellent journalism" by news organisations whose broadcasts are received in the United Kingdom.
