The National Student Media Awards 2021 are fast approaching and we are delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with Ireland’s public service broadcaster, RTÉ! RTÉ will be sponsoring the TV Production of the Year award at this year’s awards.

RTÉ is a world-renowned broadcasting service that had its first television broadcast on Irish airwaves on New Year’s Eve 1961. Since then RTÉ has hosted a wide variety of radio and television programs such as magazine shows, documentaries and groundbreaking news. Some shows that RTÉ have produced include The Republic of Telly, Love/Hate and The Doireann Project.

RTÉ’s vision is to champion Irish culture by captivating audiences with trusted, engaging and challenging content; celebrating our country’s rich diversity and cultivating Ireland’s talent. RTÉ does this in several ways through programs, archiving audiovisual Irish life and supporting many local and national arts events.

We are thrilled to partner with RTÉ at this year’s awards. Their sponsorship supports student media producers. It provides them with a fantastic opportunity to have their work recognised by industry professionals, meet their future peers and have an opportunity to network with talented media producers. This is such an amazing opportunity as it helps pave the way for Ireland’s future media producers.

Applications for this year’s National Student Media Awards have closed and the event will take place online on June 2nd.
