Outstanding Contribution to Student Media
Student media has a long and proud history in Ireland and in recent years it has become more important and prominent than ever. This award will go to an individual who has demonstrated a clear commitment to developing student media as a means to engaging the student population, whether that is as a journalist or broadcaster, or in a support capacity to a media outlet. The award recognises that there is a wide variety of ways in which an individual student can contribute to the success of student media.

There are no set questions for this application and applicants are instructed that the process involves a judgment on the overall quality of the applicant. A “student journalist” or “student broadcaster” is not just a student who writes content or presents shows, but also one who focuses on student issues and produces bespoke content for a third-level audience. Similarly, those who work in a supporting capacity will do this through a variety of ways, and the application will need to demonstrate how those individuals have contributed to the success of student media.
