The Caravan awarded Stanford University’s Shorenstein Journalism Award for 2023

This May, The Caravan’s work has been recognised by two institutes. Stanford University’s Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center has awarded us the Shorenstein Journalism Award for 2023 for our steadfast coverage that champions accountability and media independence. “Despite intimidation and harassment from the government, The Caravan continues to document the erosion of democracy and human rights in India,” Gi-Wook Shin, the director of APARC, said. “The magazine’s team of intrepid editors and reporters demonstrates the highest level of journalistic integrity and excellence. It is our honor to recognize it with the 2023 Shorenstein Journalism Award.”

Neel Madhav and Alishan Jafri have also won an ACJ award, for social-impact journalism, for their longform report, “Clicks and Bait: How a constellation of far-right Hindi YouTubers determine what you see on your TV,” published in our December 2022 media issue. “Madhav and Jafri’s in-depth reportage uncovers the ugly truth behind the manipulation of mainstream media narratives by right-wing amateur youtubers,” ACJ noted on its website. “Their work is a powerful reminder of the social responsibility that comes with journalism.”
