Signing off from beautiful and challenging China, with a little something from Taishan in Shandong province from last autumn. It was an honor to take over the @theiwmf #instagramaccount this week and I hope you enjoyed seeing my pictures and videos from this part of the globe. This is Hélène Franchineau (@helene_fr ), video and multimedia journalist for AP in China (for now) and soon relocating to the Middle East. I wish all the best to my fellow women journalists: look up, stay focused, keep pushing, and never take no for an answer! #iwmf #china #journalism #byebye

@Regrann from @natgeo - Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // Ritu Saini (foreground), 21, and Rupa, 23, enjoy monsoon rains on a roof in Agra, India. Both women are acid attack survivors. A disfiguring and sometimes deadly retributive act generally taken by, or on behalf of, men whose advances the women rejected, acid attacks disfigure hundreds of women and girls in India every year. Formerly a volleyball player, Ritu was attacked by her cousin. After several reconstructive surgeries, she lost her left eye. Rupa was attacked when she was 15. Ritu now spends her days educating people about acid attacks while working at Sheroes Hangout Cafe @sheroeshangout in Agra, India, which is staffed by acid attack survivors and supported by the group @StopAcidAttacks. The group advocates for policies to help acid attack survivors. . Today it was announced that I am the recipient of this year’s Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award, granted each year to a female photographer since Anja’s tragic death in Afghanistan in 2014 by the International Women's Media Foundation @theiwmf. It is a tremendous, if bittersweet, honor to win an award in Anja’s name. I’ve long been moved by IWMF’s mission to unleash the potential of women journalists as champions of press freedom to transform the global news media. Today, I feel this is needed more than ever. I am humbled and proud that the jury would recognize my photojournalism in this way and be one of the women journalists supported and empowered by this prestigious organization. I am grateful for the awareness such a high profile honor will bring to the stories I shared in my application, including Ritu’s above, which was made on assignment last year for @natgeo. It is a privilege to share the stories of the women and girls who truly deserve an award for their courage. #women #girls #iwmf #sheroes #stopacidattacks- #regrann

Covering China also means covering its more than 56 minorities that live all over the country. Here in Gansu province in Western China, I got the chance to spend the Tibetan New Year with a local Tibetan family. I later came back to watch an annual horse racing festival. In China, Tibet doesn't stop at the frontiers of the Tibetan province. Historical Tibet spreads to parts of western Sichuan, but also Qinghai, Gansu, and northern Yunnan province. You find people who sometimes speak a poor Mandarin (the common language in China) but are proud of their religion (Buddhism), language and culture, all of which are unfortunately endangered by Beijing's general lack of interest and tolerance toward what's not Han Chinese, what's different and could potentially pose a threat to the Communist Party. The first 3 pictures were taken in February 2016 near Xiahe, during Tibetan New Year (Losar), spent with a local family. The last pictures were taken in August 2016 when I came back to the same area to watch the Maqu horse racing festival, an annual 3-day competition (1,000m; 5,000m and 10,000m) that draws riders from nearby provinces and even from Xinjiang. This is Hélène Franchineau (@helene_fr ), video and multimedia journalist for AP based in China. I'm posting for @theiwmf this week some pictures of my work on assignment in China and other countries. #iwmf #china #tibet #gansu #newyear #minorities #tibetan #buddhism

A group of Beijingers, some wearing face masks, play a game of ice hockey on the frozen Liangma river on January 1, 2017. The air quality index that day was 500 (=hazardous levels). Air pollution is one of Beijing's (and many other Chinese cities) most serious problems. Smog levels were off the charts for most of last November and December, when the authorities issued their first red alert: schools closed, traffic sharply reduced, people told to stay at home. It smells acrid, it looks grey, it dries your eyes and gives you a headache. No matter where you go or how well you protect yourself against the smog, there is sometimes nowhere to hide, and many Chinese people don't take the threat seriously enough and protect themselves. In a few years, the public health consequences will be dire. -- This is Hélène Franchineau (@helene_fr ), video and multimedia journalist for AP based in China, posting for @theiwmf this week. #everydaychina #everydaybeijing #beijing #china #airpollution #smog #airpocalypse #iwmf

Acid attacks disfigure hundreds of women and girls in India every year.

Today it was announced that I am the recipient of this year’s Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award, granted each year to a female photographer since Anja’s tragic death in Afghanistan in 2014 by the International Women's Media Foundation @theiwmf. It is a tremendous, if bittersweet, honor to win an award in Anja’s name. I’ve long been moved by IWMF’s mission to unleash the potential of women journalists as champions of press freedom to transform the global news media. Today, I feel this is needed more than ever. I am humbled and proud that the jury would recognize my photojournalism in this way and be one of the women journalists supported and empowered by this prestigious organization. I am grateful for the awareness such a high profile honor will bring to the stories I shared in my application, including Ritu’s above, which was made on assignment last year for @natgeo. #women #girls #iwmf #sheroes #stopacidattacks

This is what happens when you try to interview one of the only independent candidates running for Beijing's local elections (November 2016). Am army of police, plain clothes and village thugs trying to prevent you from filming or even getting near Liu Huizhen, a brave migrant worker living in the south of Beijing. She hasn't done anything wrong, as the local election system allows for independent candidates to run- in theory. In practice, everything is done to discourage potential independent candidates from running. Liu was threatened, kept at home and barred from running a proper campaign. The reality of covering China. This is Hélène Franchineau (@helene_fr ), video journalist for AP based in China, posting for the IWMF this week. #china #beijing #journalism #iwmf

Thank you IWMF for the honorable mention in this year's Anja Niedringhaus Award for Courage in Photojournalism; very proud to be among some amazing photographers including winner of the award @stephsinclairpix and Louisa Gouliamaki, and thank you @instagram for sharing the news! #photojournalism #iwmf #instagram #war #conflict #civiliansinconflict #iraq #womeninphotography #womenphotograph #anjascourage --------------------------------------- #repost@instagram with @repostapp ・・・ “I was curious to know what drove people to fight against their neighbors,” says photojournalist Nicole Tung (@nicoletung), who started covering conflict in 2011 amid revolutions in North Africa. More recently, she’s documented the mass displacement of civilians as Iraqi forces battled to retake Mosul from the Islamic State and the daily violence faced by residents of Aleppo, Syria. Nicole covers combat zones, but her focus is on how war affects the most vulnerable, bringing sensitivity and context to fast-changing and dire situations. “You have to show the reality and also not make it this horrible exposé, dramatic thing — which it is,” she says, “but I don’t want it to be sensational.” Today in Washington, D.C., the International Women’s Media Foundation (@theiwmf) is recognizing Nicole’s work with an honorable mention for the Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award.

October 2015: still on the theme of surveillance in China. Bai Budan (白卜旦) is a Beijing cartoonist who uses water color to paint scenes of local Beijing life, usually with a sharp critical eye. A children folk song praises Tiananmen Square, and on a recent visit to Tiananmen, after passing through the unpleasant security check and witnessing the number of surveillance cameras, Bai decided to paint a cartoon that refers to that song. The cartoon shows two little children pointing at the cameras and saying, ironically, "我爱北京天安门的摄像头!" ("I love the surveillance cameras on Tiananmen Square!" - playing with the original lyrics of the song). Here is a timelapse of Bai Budan and his creation process, from the idea on Tiananmen Square to the actual drawing. This is Hélène Franchineau (@helene_fr ), video and multimedia journalist based in Beijing for AP. I'm taking over the #instagramaccount of the IWMF this week to post pictures of my work. #beijing #china #iwmf #censorship #cartoon #tiananmen
