THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Merin Mary Chacko, student of the 2011 batch of the Press Club, is the first recipient of the E A Fernandez Memorial Award instituted by the Thiruvananthapuram Press Club’s Institute of Journalism. Merin will receive a cash award of Rs 10,000 and a certificate of merit.

This award has been instituted in memory of the late E A Fernandez, a journalist who spent the last 27 years of his fifty-year career as the editor of the ‘Manasastram’ magazine.

The award honours the mind that can think and express itself best every year, using a 1,500-word essay. Across the years, these essays will become a yardstick of the changing hopes, aspirations, perspectives, concepts and misconceptions of every generation preparing to step into the world of journalism.
