Mumbai: The Mumbai Press Club, a prominent body of journalists in the city, has extended the deadline for the submission of entries for its prestigious RedInk Awards to April 15.
The decision was taken after several journalists and editors requested that the time for submission be extended, the Club said.
For the 9th edition of the awards, a new category of ‘The Arts’ has been added, with sub-categories ‘Fine Arts’ and ‘Performing Arts’.
In all, awards will be given in 15 categories, including reporting and investigation for subjects including Politics, Crime, Economics, Environment, Human Rights, Sports and Science and Innovation.
Last year, the RedInk Lifetime Achievement Award was bestowed on veteran journalist Mark Tully.
