The National Foundation for India invites application for its National Media Awards Programme, 2018.  The award is for young, mid-career journalists  and will allow them to publish and research articles /photo-essays on issues of national concern, which though important, do not receive adequate media attention.  The award supports the pursuit of in-depth, creative field research on these concerns and writing about them with adequate evidence.

The award programme is now in its twenty third year and so far around 230 journalists from across the country have been awarded under the programme.
