American-Egyptian journalist, Ayman Mohyeldin, is becoming a household name globally as he continues to be celebrated and awarded for his courageous work, covering stories in some of the most dangerous places in the world including his latest coverage of the ongoing plight of Gazans.

Mohyeldin has continued to shine in the limelight making appearances at the GQ Men of the Year Party on Thursday, coming off the heels of winning Esquire Magazine’s Journalist of the Year award in late november. Sadly, Mohyeldin wasn’t able to receive the award in person but made it very clear that he was “honoured and humbled to have won Esquire Magazine’s Journalist of the Year, and couldn’t have done it without amazing producers and cameramen along the way.”

Although he was a no-show at the Esquire event, Mohyeldin was able to make it to the GQ event and looked like a winner. Giving journalism a good name, Mohyeldin has arguably provided some of the greatest coverage on events few dare to cover. From Libya’s nuclear research program to his great coverage of Egypt’s revolution and the ensuing crisis in the Sinai peninsula, Mohyeldin continues to shed light on the dark truths that the media often fails to expose.

We at CairoScene would like to congratulate Mohyeldin on his recent successes as the accolades are well deserved. If you would like to learn more about his work check out our interview with him here.
