30 Mar,2017



Mumbai Press Club has announced a final call to journalists and editors to enter their best and award-winning stories for journalism’s most sought-after awards – the RedInk Awards 2017.  The last date is tomorrow, March 31.


Besides the regular 11 categories for which jury awards have been instituted, this year there will be a special award for ‘Mumbai’s Star Reporter’ for outstanding coverage of issues/events in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. As before, the RedInk Awards will also honour the ‘Journalist of the Year’ and a senior journalist for ‘Lifetime Achievement’.


Entries are elicited in 11 categories that include politics, business, crime, Science and Innovation, Environment, etc. Entries from print/web and television will be judged separately by juries that are set up for each of the categories.


This year, a special drive is being made to elicit entries from regional media, and the response from Hindi publications has been especially encouraging, notes a communique. Since the last two years a new category – Journalist of the Year – has been introduced, and it has created a new spate of entries. Last year, NDTV India’s Ravish Kumar won the award and before that in 2015, it was Srinivasan Jain of NDTV.


The Awards will be presented to winners in Mumbai on June 7.


The presenting partner along with the Mumbai Press Club for the awards is Star India, while The Hindu Group is the ‘Print Media Partner’. Other associates include Glenmark Pharma, the Aditya Birla Group, Dr Reddy’s Laboratories and Eros International. MxMIndia is supporting the event in the promotions.
