We are delighted to announce that The Irish Independent is back to sponsor the Editor of the Year award at the Smedias 2023!

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. The Independent’s goal is to be a relevant and trusted news source in every community they serve.
