This award is presented to a photographer whose ‘photograph has the powerful ability to capture a specific moment in time and tell the story in a single image,’ according to the CNN MultiChoice African Journalist Award website.

Oatway’s award-winning photograph documented a crucial story in South Africa’s history, when a xenophobic attack in 2015 led to the deadly beating and stabbing of Mozambican migrant, Emmanuel Sithole, by South Africans in Alexandra Township, Johannesburg. Oatway’s photos of the attack were originally featured in the Sunday Times, South Africa.

SAFREA is honoured to have Oatway as a member of its association.
