The Mumbai Press Club on Wednesday, 29 December, announced The Quint’s Creative Director Tridip K Mandal, as well as independent journalist Syed Shahriyar, winners of the prestigious RedInk Award in the Human Rights (TV) category.

The award was given for The Quint’s ground report: ‘My Life in Kashmir’ – A Year Since the Abrogation of Article 370.

The ground report, published on 4 August 2020, delves into the trauma of living under a year-long lockdown since the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir.
