MUMBAI: News channel CNN has launched the fourth edition of the CNN Young Journalist Award (CNN YJA) in association with ITC-Welcomgroup. This year, two new categories have been added in addition to the existing CNN YJA categories - CNN Aspiring Journalist Award in collaboration with Hindustan Times and the CNN Citizen Journalist Award in partnership with CNN-IBN. Launched in 2003, the CNN Young Journalist Award offers a platform for furthering journalistic brilliance among young journalists across India and Pakistan.

CNN’s senior Intl correspondent Satinder Bindra said, “As a journalist myself, I am delighted to be associated with CNN YJA for the last three years. The award aims at instilling the values and ethics associated with journalism among the young journalists of India & Pakistan. This year, we have introduced CNN Aspiring Journalist Award and the CNN Citizen Journalist Award. With the addition of these new categories, CNN has reinforced its commitment to recognize and honour individuals involved in the process of newsgathering.”

The CNN Young Journalist Award is targetted at young journalists in India and Pakistan within the age group of 22 – 28 years, in the print/online and television categories. While CNN Aspiring Journalist Award is targeted at Indian students of journalism who have just appeared (awaiting results) or are appearing for the final examinations, CNN Citizen Journalist Award is open to citizens of India, [who are not professional journalists] and encourages them to play an active role in the process of collecting and disseminating news and information on issues that have an impact on society.

CNN–IBN editor in chief Rajdeep Sardesai said, “We are glad to support CNN in their endeavour to encourage journalism across the country through the CNN Citizen Journalist Award. News can happen anywhere, any time and at many times in an area where we may not have immediate access, it is the viewer who can provide us with an accurate picture of the actual situation. The initiative, ‘Citizen Journalism’ from CNN-IBN and IBN 7, offers a platform to involve the viewers and make him/her an active participant in the process of newsgathering, making television news truly interactive. Through this initiative, we are trying to emphasize the importance of the role a citizen plays in the newsgathering process, thereby influencing society at large.”
