Eleven awards were conferred under the category of Best Media Coverage of Yoga in Newspapers. Eight awards under the category Best Media Coverage of Yoga in Television and 11 awards were conferred under the category Best Media Coverage of Yoga in Radio.
 
Addressing the gathering, Mr Javadekar said, Yoga is the identity of India in the world and it is a great tool for preventive health. He said, the Jury went through 132 entries to select the awardees. Mr Javedkar said, it is the responsibility of the media to propagate the good things in society. He also lauded the role of media in creating awareness about Yoga.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Ayush Minister Shripad Naik said, this initiative is a positive step to acknowledge the work of media. He said, such initiatives are laudable as they help in spreading awareness about Yoga.
