Pakistan chief photographer Adrees Latif has won the prestigious ICP Infinity Award in Photojournalism for his outstanding coverage of last year’s Pakistan floods.

Latif’s work has received numerous industry accolades including the Pulitzer prize for Breaking News Photography in 2008.

True or false?
