Babak was working in ICT4D before it had a name (2001), and never really left it. Now, he can help you to get lost.

Babak brought photomarathons to Africa (2007) and won the Highway Africa new media award (2007).
He is the only three-time winner of the UN World Summit Awards; in 2012, 2017, and 2021.
In 2016, together with Agência Pública, he won, and was a runner up for, the Prêmio Jornalístico Vladimir Herzog de Anistia e Direitos Humanos. In 2017, he cooperated on work which was nominated for the Gabriel García Márquez award, and the Prêmio Petrobras de Jornalismo.


From translations of the Greek playwright Aristophanes: It literally means to walk on the air, but actually means to walk as if on air. What a perfect word for buoyant sauntering, after, say, receiving good news. Credits to Mark Peters.
