West Bengal Film Journalists’ Association (WBFJA) announced the nomination categories of West Bengal Film Journalists’ Association Award 2017. Dev, Dr. Shoma Chatterji, Senior Member WBFJA, Nirnal Dhar, Secretary, WBFJA and others were present to announce the nomination categories. The event also saw the unveiling of the logo of this award ceremony.

There will be seventeen award categories in the popular award segment and eight award categories in the technical award segment. A lifetime achievement award is also among one of the categories. Some of the nomination categories include Best Film, Best Music, Best Playback Singer (Male), Best Playback Singer (Female), Most popular film of the year and so on.


Speaking at the occasion, Dev said “This is indeed a pleasure for me to come and be a part of such an event. My first performance was at the BFJA Awards. I was so scared when I was asked to perform as I could not dance well then. All the big stars were going to perform. My remuneration was the plane tickets that I got for my parents so that they could come and watch me dance at the show. This has been an emotional journey for me”.


Dr. Shoma Chatterji said “Many journalists who work in the digital, television media often go unnoticed. They cannot give their names in the National Awards as only print media is allowed there. So we have plans of having nomination categories where journalists can be appreciated for the work that they do”.

The event will take place at Priya Cinema Hall on 8th January from 9.30 am to 12.30pm.
