Nariman El-Mofty

Nariman Ayman El-Mofty is a Cairo-based photojournalist for The Associated Press. She joined the AP in 2011 and has since covered top stories and special projects across the Middle East.

El-Mofty is part of the AP team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2019 for international reporting based on its compelling coverage of the grinding conflict in Yemen, the ensuing humanitarian crisis, and a series of deep investigative stories, photos, and videos chronicling atrocities spawned by the war. The AP’s investigative reporting on the war in Yemen in 2018 was supported by a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, and the team also received the 2019 Michael Kelly award.

El-Mofty won the Overseas Press Club’s Olivier Rebbot Award for her coverage of the Yemen war, and was a 2017 Magnum Foundation fellow.
