The Media Innovation Awards seek to recognise path-breaking innovative practices or initiatives which will help publishers and broadcasters take the business into the future.

These initiatives could relate to any of the following areas:

  • Editorial/Programming/Content
  • Marketing
  • Distribution
  • Workplace

Any initiative that is innovative and makes the business more robust would be eligible for entry.

Dates and Location

You can avail early bird discount on your submissions until January 25, 2020. The entry submission portal closes on February 13, 2020. Final Showdown: March 25, 2020.


  • Only Print, Television, Radio and Online companies which operate in India are eligible.
  • Any initiative that is innovative and makes the publishing and broadcasting business more robust would be eligible for entry.
  • Entries should relate to an activity or initiative carried out or continued between January 01, 2019 and December 31, 2019.
  • The entries must relate to the media brand that is participating - and NOT to work it may have done for clients. For example, an entry under 'Marketing' must relate to the marketing of the media brand itself.

Note: Five types of companies can participate in each of the four categories below.

  • Editorial/Programming/Content
  • Marketing
  • Distribution
  • Workplace

However, each company's entries will be judged only against companies of the same type. For example, an entry by a print publisher will be rated against only an entry of another print publisher - and NOT against entries from, say, a TV channel or a radio broadcaster.

Entry Guidelines

  • All entry forms must be filled in English.
  • Entry forms and accompanying materials must be attached through the online form by February 06, 2020. An email notification will be sent as soon as we receive your entries. Note: The entry PDF will have the execution, impact, result, and anything else that strengthens the entry.
