The drug fuelled violence that has gripped many parts of Mexico is a tough place for even the most season police officer, let alone a photographer trying to catch that meaningful image.

It is probably one of the toughest jobs out there, but that is just what freelance photographer Arturo Perez has been pursuing over the two years.

Perez has been covering the bloody drug between cartels and government troops in Ciudad Juarez since 2008 and has captured some of the most powerful and moving images from the conflict.

It is a tough job that hasn't gone unnoticed.

Perez has just been awarded the 2010 Martin Adler Prize at this year’s Rory Peck Awards.

The prize is given to the journalist or photographer that played an exceptional role in the telling of a significant news story - this one being the deadly war in Mexico.

Perez has been an important part of the coverage of the murders of U.S. consulate workers, the mass killing of 15 people slain by gunmen, and the killing of young addicts at a drug rehab centre.

"Arturo has captured with his camera shocking images which document the massacres, attacks, disappearances and car bombs which have left thousands of victims in a city which has become the battle ground for criminal gangs," Manuel Carrillo, Senior Producer at Reuters in Mexico, who nominated Arturo for the Prize told the Rory Peck Trust.

"Despite threats and intimidation from these gangs and even from the security forces, Arturo has remained strong and unfailing in his coverage – mindful of the fact that in Mexico, other journalists have been killed just for fulfilling their duty to keep society informed."

Here's your chance to quiz one of the toughest, if not bravest photographers currently in the business.
