PCI announces National Awards for Excellence in Journalism 2016

The Press Council of India (PCI) has announced National Awards for Excellence in Journalism 2016. The awards will honour “journalists in print journalism” across different fields.

“To encourage the media to pursue its duties without fear or favour following the dictum of ‘freedom with responsibility,’ the Press Council of India, as the only statutory authority enjoying such mandate, proposes to institute National Awards to honour journalists excelling in print journalism in various fields in the calendar year 2015,” PCI said.

The awards will be given away on the occasion of the National Press Day on November 16, 2016. While the “Raja Ram Mohan Roy National Award for Excellence in Journalism” carries a cash prize of Rs. 1 Lakh, other awards for rural journalism and developmental reporting, investigative journalism, photo journalism and newspaper art have a cash prize of Rs. 50,000 each.

Working journalists and freelancers of Indian nationality can apply for the esteemed awards before August 20 next month. The winners will be selected by an eminent six-member jury.
