The Smedias are the biggest student media award ceremony in Ireland, very much the Oscars of the Irish student media world- but with greater racial diversity.

The ceremony will be held, for the third year running, in the needlessly decadent surroundings of the Aviva Stadium on April 6th, 2017. Last year’s show was MC’d by the wonderful Eoghan McDermott, and had in attendance such luminaries of the Irish media world as Marty Morrissey, Dave Fanning and Mark Hennessey; It’s truly a night to remember for those lucky enough to be nominated.

The awards provide a fantastic opportunity for aspiring media students to have their hard work recognised and brought to the attention of industry professionals, and, more importantly, is an excuse for an amazing night out! The Smedias After-Party, last year held in Sam’s Bar on Dawson Street was a night to make even circa 2011 Charlie Sheen blush.

Details on how to hook yourself up with a ticket will be released closer to the event.
