Two eminent writers on music, Deepak Raja and Lakshmi Devnath, were honoured on 17 January by the Music Forum, Mumbai. Both have been writing for the magazine for more than a decade.

Deepak Raja received the Dr. Ashok Ranade Memorial Award 2014, for his "valued and distinguished contribution to the field of Indian classical music" as a noted sitar player, musicologist, and author of books on Hindustani music.

Lakshmi Devnath has written books on art personalities and several articles on music. A pioneering effort by her has been a series of 
pictorial books on Carnatic musicians that aims to reach out to the next generation. The Music Forum Media Award 2014 was presented to her for the promotion of Indian culture through media.
