Mumbai : According to a statement made here on Wednesday, the Mumbai Press Club will present Neerja Chowdhury, a seasoned writer and journalist, with the RedInk Award for Lifetime Achievement in recognition of her more than 40 years of journalistic service.
Along with 28 other media winners in 12 different categories of the awards, Dhaniya Rajendra and Sharad Vyas will share the title of RedInk Journalist of the Year-2022.
This year, during a celebration set for December 2 at the Royal Opera House in this city, the 99-year-old independence fighter Dr. G.G. Parikh will give this year’s prizes as the chief guest alongside former Additional Solicitor-General of India Indira Jaising.
As he reaches the ‘century’ of his life on December 30, Parikh — who was jailed as a student while protesting during the Freedom Movement — shall also be felicitated for his long services to the country through social reforms.
The Mumbai Press Club instituted the RedInk Awards in 2011 to accord peer recognition to good investigative journalism and feature writing and to raise the bar of the media in the country.
