KARACHI: Eight journalists received awards on Wednesday for exhibiting distinction in reporting on social issues by the Centre for Excellence in Journalism.

Geo News' reporter Amna Amir was among the award winners who received the award at the ceremony — Lab Azad — held at IBA Karachi earlier today.

Amir received the award for a report on basic health facilities for pregnant women.

Former Senator Javed Jabbar and journalists working for different organisations were also in attendance. 

Lab Azad is an independent award given every year to print and broadcast journalists who exhibit distinction in reporting on social issues.
