N.B. A few students are reporting issues with uploading their photographs to the application form. If you are experiencing any issues with any of the photography categories, you should submit the application form without your photographs attached and email your photos separately to email@example.com with the subject of your email being the photography categories you are entering.
We’ve implemented an online application process for all categories EXCLUDING Journalism. The categories for which you can enter through the below form are all listed in the dropdown category menus.
A full explanation of the entry guidelines and requirements for each category can be found on each individual category page, or for a brief rundown on what you need to do for categories in each section can be found here.
Payment: Once you fill out the application form you will be emailed a link to the PayPal page on Oxygen.ie, where you can go to complete your application by paying the contribution fee for entering. Alternately, you may also select the option to pay by Cash/ Cheque/ Postal Order on the form, instructions for how to do so will then appear on the form, or can also be found on our Entry Guidelines page.
Queries: We are hoping that by having this online application form and online payment system, the process of entering the Smedias will be streamlined for everyone and do not want it to act as a barrier to anyone who’s considering entering the awards. Feel free to get in touch with any queries or problems you’re having with either the application form or if you’ve any issues about paying online and we’ll endeavour to help you out.
