20th Annual PoleStar Awards

Celebrating Excellence in Social Impact

The PoleStar Social Impact Award has been instituted to honour outstanding efforts by NGOs and Social Enterprises that go out of their way to ensure the underprivileged lives and communities around them are improved.

The PoleStar Foundation has always believed in recognition that is truly deserved. No effort taken to make the world a better place should ever be unheard of or lost. That is why, the PoleStar Social Impact Award was brought into being. Exemplary efforts and activities in the fields of Education, Livelihood, Health and Empowerment have been awarded in the last two years. We welcome submissions again for PoleStar Social Impact Awards 2019.

Celebrating Excellence in Journalism

The PoleStar Award recognizes outstanding talent among Indian media professionals and celebrates stupendous contributions from media citizens who have acted as catalysts in disseminating quality information to the world.

Back in 1998, when The PoleStar Award was instituted, it was believed that, in the years to come, the IT industry was going to alter global equations in India's favour. India was fast emerging as a happening business hub.

Consequently, The PoleStar Award was formed to encourage and salute exemplary work in Technology journalism, Business journalism and good news feature. From a humble beginning, the PoleStar Award has reached a landmark of completing 20 years of celebrating Excellence in Journalism.

We have cherished every moment of the awards and look forward to the many milestones to come.
