Srinagar: A Kashmiri journalist has been awarded Anupum Mishra Memorial Medal 2021 for his environment-based stories.

In 2016, the Indian Rivers Forum, an amalgamation of various NGOs and trusts in Delhi working on environmentally sensitive issues, had initiated Anupam Mishra Memorial Medal in memory of Anupum Mishra, a renowned conservationist, to celebrate media professionals who have established an exceptional body of credible work on various aspects of rivers leading to changes in behavior, public discourse, law, and policy.

This year two journalists have been selected for this award and one among the two is Athar Parvaiz from Kashmir.
