Shreeya Sinha

Former Staff and Intern

Shreeya Sinha is an award-winning journalist and producer at the Foreign desk of The New York Times. She was most recently a producer at the Asia Society, where she shot video interviews with global leaders, produced multimedia packages, and wrote about the rise of Asia.

Shreeya is the winner of Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards (the equivalent of the Pulitzer Prizes in broadcast news,) has won Pictures of the Year International and was nominated for an Emmy and Webby for ‘Undesired’, a multimedia project about violence against women in India featuring photojournalist Walter Astrada’s work. She spent months reporting, finding women who would speak out, shooting video and field producing the project for Mediastorm and wrote their first investigative story.

Shreeya grew up in India, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Vietnam, Bangladesh, and the foothills of the Indian Himalayas. She received her master’s degree with honors from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and a bachelor’s in Politics and International Relations from Brandeis University.

Shreeya was a summer intern at MediaStorm in 2010. Here is what she had to say about that experience:

Spending six months at MediaStorm gave me a solid visual foundation that would serve me for the rest of my career. MediaStorm sets the gold standard for photography, video, graphics, interactivity and the editing of all these elements. It's a luxury in our industry to spend so much time on a project like "Undesired," but that's when you really see the magic happen.

After MediaStorm, I worked at the Asia Society, a global non-profit with an award-winning website. For the past seven years, I have worked at The New York Times, working my way up from a producer creating visual stories, to an editor launching new ways to tell them, and now National Operations Director, focused on innovation and growth for the whole desk. I was also recruited to teach multimedia storytelling as an Adjunct Faculty Professor at CUNY’s Graduate School of Journalism.
Undesired by Walter Astrada

In India, all women must confront the cultural pressure to bear a son. The consequences of this preference is a disregard for the lives of women and girls. From birth until death they face a constant threat of violence.
