The European Commission award competition was awarded to the best article which covers EU affairs and was printed in a student publication within the last year.

Congratulations to Brian Donnelly from UCD who not only won a Smedia, but also a very nice €1000 as well . Brians article will also be published in a regional or online publication.

The European Commission is an institution of the European Union, responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the EU treaties and managing the day-to-day business of the EU.

Some of the roles that the Irish contingent of the European commission include explaining how EU policies will affect people in Ireland and is also a source of EU-related information for the government and other authorities in Ireland.

We were thrilled to partner with the European Commission again this year for this award.
