Klaas van Dijken
I'm a Dutch freelance journalist, videographer and one of the founders of Butch & Sundance Media, an award winning production company.
I work as a freelance reporter in conflict areas and countries with repressive regimes like Sudan, South Sudan, Eritrea, Afghanistan and Somalia. My work has been published globally in newspapers, magazines, on websites, and TV channels.
I won the Dutch award De Tegel in 2016 and I've been nominated for the 2015 Bayeux-Calvados Award for War Correspondents in France.
