The Smedias awards took place at the Aviva stadium last month and it was a fantastic night for NUIG publication ‘Sin’ who won the ‘Newspaper of the Year award’, a category sponsored by the Irish Times.

We were honoured to have the Irish Times with us on the night and feel their reputation as one of the most prestigious newspapers in Ireland made them a fitting sponsor for the award.

They have been great supporters of students across the country with their website being made available for free to third level students. Since they started in 1859, they have always been at the forefront of quality journalism, becoming the first newspaper to create a website 1994.

We would like to thank The Irish Times for sponsoring our award and for their continues support over the years.
