Once again, one of the most prestigious Smedia awards up for grabs will be sponsored by one of Ireland’s most prestigious publications!

We are honoured to have had The Irish Times on board as a sponsor of the Smedias for a number of years now, and for 2018 they’ll once again be sponsoring the coveted ‘Newspaper of the Year’.

Ever since its foundation since 1859, the newspaper has been an institution of top quality, Irish journalism throughout the country.

It’s also crystal-clear that The Irish Times knows how to cater to students and move along with the times; in 1994, they became the first newspaper in the country to establish a website, and its subscription is now available for free to all Irish third-level students.

We are thrilled that such a world-renowned newspaper will be sponsoring the award that sees each college’s flagship publication battle for the glory that is the title of ‘Newspaper of the Year’.

We again thank The Irish Times for their sponsorship, and wish the best of luck to all of our entrants.
