MUMBAI: The Press Club, Mumbai, has called for entries for its annual awards for excellence in writing and photo journalism, expanding the number of awards it gives for the written works.

The Club, which announced two categories for the first time for written works last year, has also instituted a Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding lifetime Contribution to Journalism.

The awards endeavour to promote best practices among journalists and encourage quality writing, fair play and high ethical standards. The Club has been awarding the best performers among photo-journalists in Mumbai for the last 10 years and introduced two categories for writers last year: the K N Prabhu Awards for Excellence in cricket writing, and the Pradeep Shinde Awards for the Excellence in Crime Reporting.

Entries can be in any language but those in Indian languages must carry an English translation. The last date for receipt of entries is 5 April.

Each of the categories of awards has a total cash component of Rs 100,000: the winning article/story will be awarded Rs.75,000 and a citation, while the runners-up will get Rs 25,000 and a citation.

Apart from the Lifetime Achievement Award, the categories of awards for 2012 are:

2. The Pradeep Shinde Award for Excellence in Crime Reporting for the Best Crime story or investigation in 2012.
