We are proud to announce the Irish Independent has once again agreed to sponsor the “Editor of the Year” for this year’s 2020 National Student Media Awards. As part of the Independent News and Media PLC (INM), The Irish Independent provides high quality global, national, and local news to the Irish public.

Their mission to be a relevant and trusted source of information in every community they serve has been met on their website, independent.ie, by including their five national and 14 regional newspapers in order to deliver news that caters to every individual in Ireland. The sponsorship of the “Editor of the Year” category shows not only that their desire to deliver news to everyone also applies to students in Ireland but that they are also focused on highlighting those who maintain the quality of their respective newspapers.

We are thrilled that a market-leading national newspaper like the Irish Independent which works within the Independent News and Media to bring local news to all people in Ireland have once again agreed to sponsor the “Editor of the Year” category and show their prolific output puts special attention to editorial work.
We would like to thank The Irish Independent again for their sponsorship and wish the best of luck to all of our entrants. Applications are open from the 2-12 of March
