Ritu Mehra wins Citizen Journalist award
It is a great pleasure in sharing the news about our latest achievement as a team. Our team member Ritu Mehra has been honoured with Citizen Journalist Award for reporting a story using a picture to communicate the issue. The picture shows students of a government school, asking residents and passersby to give them water. The school has no drinking water, literally leaving the students and teachers high and dry.
The award adheres to a 2-tier selection process involving The IBN18 Editorial Board that generates a list of nominees across various categories & The Jury comprising Eminent Citizens who select the final Citizen Journalist Award winners. It is an excellent platform to pay a tribute to civil heroes of the society who reported fearlessly and dared to raise their voice against injustice and all odds of society for a better tomorrow.
