The Lifetime Achievement Award will be given to Dr. Prabha Atre, renowned Indian Classical Vocalist from Kirana Gharana for her contributions to the field of music.

South Asia Laadli Media Awards is also felicitating  Himanshu Devi Marchurchand from Mauritius, Tooba Masood from Pakistan and  Durga Karki from Nepal.

 Dr. A. L. Sharada, Director, Population First, shares, "From a mere 100 entries in 2007 to more than 1700 entries in 2018, Laadli Media Awards have come a long way in acknowledging the media’s contribution in women empowerment and gender issues.  This proves that even in the worst of situations and cynical times there is hope. There is hope because there are many who are being true to their profession in journalism, showing great sensitivity and compassion, raising critical questions about gender inequalities, discrimination and violence and showing a mirror to our politicians as well as all of us.”
