Mumbai Press Club ‘Ouch’ Awards will be given away in Mumbai on 20 April 2015



BBC, New York Times and Shobhaa De compete for

Mumbai Press Club’s ‘Golden Ouch’ Awards for the

Craziest and most embarrassing moments in media!


Other nominees include Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal and Gen V.K. Singh in next week’s glittering laugh-a-minute spoof…

On Monday April 20, the Mumbai Press Club gives away 10 'prestigious' awards for the craziest moments in media at a glittering function anchored by stand-up comedian Anuvab Pal.

The evening of good-humored satire is a prelude to the more serious Mumbai Press Club RedInk Awards on April 30, 2015 that celebrate the finest in Indian journalism.

As expected, the Mumbai Press Club has been flooded with ‘tongue in cheek’ nominations in the ten different categories that cover a wide range of subjects from ‘gender equality’ to ‘science reporting’ to ‘food criticism’, to name a few. The star-studded galaxy of contenders range from senior politicians Sharad Yadav and Rahul Gandhi to ex-army officers turned politician General VK Singh and of course, the ever popular Shobhaa De for the 'Ouchies' as the new awards are lovingly referred to.

Not surprisingly, the competition has been particularly intense in categories like ‘Most Sexist Comment of the Year' with the largest number of nominations. At the time of going to press, the judges were still struggling to agree on the most outstanding contribution! The other category witnessing similar debate is for the 'Lifetime Achievement Award'.

The announcement of the final winners is kept under wraps and will be revealed at the Mumbai Press Club’s 'Ouch' Awards night at 7.00 PM on April 20, 2015 at the Mumbai Marathi Patrakar Sangh Hall amidst all the glamour, pomp and suspense associated with leading awards… but with a large dose of humour.

The satirical ‘Golden Ouch’ Awards, like the more serious ‘RedInk’ Awards, promise to be an annual event of the Mumbai Press Club.
