Veda Shastri Receives the NYU Marlene Sanders Journalism Award
Besides creating a viral 360 video for PBS Frontline in her second semester, Veda also created a thought provoking film called LADIES ONLY,
“Getting where you’re going without getting harassed. That’s what’s driving a new generation of Indian women to become taxi drivers-for women only. Enter their world as they negotiate New Delhi’s divided public transport spaces.”
Her hard work did not go unnoticed by NYU as Veda is awarded the Marlene Sanders Journalism Award. The family of Marlene Sanders and the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute have established this award in memory of Marlene Sanders. This award recognizes outstanding undergraduate or graduate journalism students at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute who display some of the energy, enthusiasm, skill and devotion to the craft of journalism as our late colleague Marlene Sanders. Awardees will be selected by a committee of faculty, with consultation by Marlene Sanders’ son Jeffrey Toobin, from among students entering the final year before graduation.
News & Documentary is a Master's-level broadcast and documentary journalism track, at NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. Graduates work around the world for top media organizations and on award-winning films.
