Veteran British journalist and former BBC India correspondent Sir William Mark Tully has been chosen for this year's RedInk award for lifetime achievement in journalism.

The RedInk awards for excellence in journalism are instituted by the Mumbai Press Club.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Union Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu will present the award to Tully on May 18 in Mumbai, the Mumbai Press Club said in a statement.

The lifetime achievement award to Tully is the recognition of his long and outstanding contribution to Indian journalism, it said.

Tully worked with the BBC for 30 years before resigning in July 1994. He held the position of Chief of Bureau, BBC, Delhi, for 20 years.

Meanwhile, Faye D'Souze, the executive editor of Mirror Now channel, has been selected as the winner of the RedInk award for 'journalist of the year'.

The statement said that D'Souza's "passionate and honest" style, with which she handled subjects like corruption, political opportunism, price rise and communalism, made her and her programme 'The Urban Debate' a subject of "appointment viewing".

Apart from these two awards, the Redink awards for excellence in journalism are given in 13 competitive categories to 32 journalists after a process of selection by a jury appointed for each category.

The awards will be presented to the winners at a ceremony here on May 18.
