Golden Moments
20th Annual PoleStar Awards
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 IT and Business Journalism. From a humble beginning, the PoleStar Award has reached a landmark of completing 19 years of celebrating Excellence in Journalism.

So much is being done in Journalism that it not only entertains, educates and informs but also transforms. In the recent years, works published have changed lives and communities, made heroes out of ordinary folk and significantly established the existence of the Good News about change and growth in everyday life. That is why this year in the 19th edition of The PoleStar Awards along with IT and Business, Good News category has been added.

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

Celebrating Excellence in Social Impact

Yet another addition this year by The PoleStar Foundation is Social Impact Award. Solely instituted to honour the countless corporates and NGOs that go out of their way to ensure the underprivileged lives and communities around them are made better, stand a chance and win it out there in this fast pacing world. Exemplary efforts and activities in the fronts of Education, Livelihood, Health and Empowerment are to be awarded.

The 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 in the spectrum. That is why, Social Impact Award was brought into being. Let this mark another new beginning to all the plethora of goodness that is to be uncovered.
