AFP photographer Bülent Kiliç has been awarded the John Faber Award from the Overseas Press Club for his series taken during the anti-government protests on Kiev's Independence Square.

The judges said: "Kiliç brings viewers right into Ukraine's revolution, capturing the chaos of the moment. His work is inspired visual reporting under difficult conditions. Each image can stand alone, and together they form a strong narrative."

Kiliç, a Turkish photographer born in 1979, became a photojournalist in 2003, joining AFP two years later. He is currently chief photographer for Turkey and has carried out several foreign missions, notably in Ukraine and Syria. Time Magazine and the Guardian chose him as their agency photographer of 2014.

In this gallery, IBTimesUK looks at one turbulent week in Kiev, as seen through the lens of Kiliç.
