Kevin Frayer, a Canadian photojournalist currently based in China, has won the 2015 Getty Images and Chris Hondros Fund Award.

The award was set up by Hondros's fiancée to honour the photojournalist who was killed on 20 April 2011 in a mortar attack in Misrata, Libya.

Frayer will receive a $20,000 (£13,400) grant to help him continue his work. He told Time Magazine: "My goal would be to take every cent and to put it towards something that I hope Chris Hondros would be proud of."

We have long been big fans of Frayer's work here at IBTimes UK, and his work has featured in many of our most popular galleries. We compile a selection of our favourite photos here.
