Television anchors and senior journalists will be on the hot seat as the Indian media’s 2014 Lok Sabha election coverage will be debated on June 7, when eminent journalists will be quizzed during the Press Club Mumbai’s RedInk Awards 2014 ceremony at the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA).
The panel discussion on ‘Elections 2014: Were We Fair, Or Did We Stoke the NaMo Wave?’ is part of the finale of the awards which will see 30 journalists win trophies in 15 categories.
Mrinal Pande, the first woman editor of a multi-edition Hindi daily, Hindustan, and recently-retired chairperson of Prasar Bharti has won the RedInk 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award.
In its fourth edition this year, the RedInk Awards announced new categories such as ‘human rights’ and ‘breaking news’. Ten panels of juries comprising citizens, senior journalists and industry experts judged over 800 entries in print, online and television categories for these awards.
Maharashtra governor K Sankaranarayan will be the guest of honour for the ceremony, which will be presided over by Minister for Information and Broadcasting Prakash Jawadekar.
