NEW DELHI: NEWSEUM, an annual three-day media exhibition organised by the students of Journalism and Mass Communication department at Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies (VIPS) is back with its 4th edition on the theme of ‘Investigative Journalism’.

With the aim of going inside the world of hidden realities, uncovered by journalists and media organisations, the exhibition attempts to give an insight into the amount of courage it takes to go into the depths of the complex scheme of things and what amount of risk is involved in revealing big names. A special place has been given to the recent “Panama Papers Leaks” making it the centre of attraction of the event.

To be held in the CIA Hall, A Block of the college from 25th to 27th October 2016 at 10 a.m. the exhibition engulfs within it some of the landmark cases of investigative journalism like Watergate Scandal, Bofors Scam, Wiki Leaks, Aadarsh Society scam, Swiss Leaks , Nira Radia Tapes etc. The visitors will witness posters and photographs containing profiles of eminent investigative journalists like, Julian Assange, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, N. Ram, P. Sainath, Chitra Subramaniam, Gabriel Garcia Marquez , Arun Shourie, Ritu Sarin among others. Their own experiences have been given a place and what recognition and awards they have got are also there.

Started in the year 2012, Newseum has come a long way and holds its own niche as a major event of the Annual Mega Media Fest of the college- Spandan, which is promoting and supporting the traditional Indian culture through its theme “Back to the roots”.

With the past editions based upon the topics “Pulitzer Awards”, “ Press History” and “Editorial Cartoons”, the exhibition is turning out to be quite informative for the students. Vivekananda Institute of Professional studies is committed to host this edition of Newseum at the same level under the never tiring efforts of the Journalism and Mass Communication Department of the college. The faculty members of the department and students too have been truly ‘investigating’ the investigators’ with the support of the Dean, VSJMC, Prof. (Dr.) CharuLatha Singh and sponsorship support from ‘HungerMafia’ and ‘Shutter Up’.
