SAJA JOURNALISM AWARDS NOW OPEN 

APPLY HERE 

Deadline: August, 15, 2020

We are accepting nominations from journalists and news organizations for excellence in reporting on South Asia or the worldwide South Asian diaspora. This year, we have introduced two new award categories that recognize the two biggest events of 2020 - the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement. In these two specific categories, we are accepting nominations for work that is produced between January 1-July 15, 2020. Nominations for all other categories should include work produced in 2019. 

Winners will be awarded in our online awards event on October 3, 2020. For any questions, write to us at president@saja.org.



OCTOBER 3, 2020


Due to the pandemic, SAJA will be holding a virtual awards ceremony this year. We are making sure that the online event will have opportunities for networking, skill building panels and a lot of South Asian fun! 

Mark the date on your calendars and stay tuned for more information in the coming months. 

Meanwhile, if you have any ideas and suggestions on what you'd like to see in our awards programming, please write to us at president@saja.org. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

In addition, all of SAJA's member resources are now free, including our JOBS BANK. We have RESOURCES to help journalists covering -- and coping -- with COVID-19.

JOURNALISTS & MENTAL HEALTH

Georgetown's journalism program called this a "terrific event and a thread to read through". WATCH journalist Aneri Pattani and Clinical Psychologist Dr. Sumi Raghavan discuss mental health issues for journalists and tools to help navigate the uncertainty of this period. You may also READ the twitter thread. 


WHAT NEXT?

Realistic and optimistic is how we'd describe this session with Swati Sharma, Managing Editor, The Atlantic & Anusha Shrivastava, Director, Career Dev., Statistics, Dept., Columbia University.
