Submissions open on the 1st of March.

The award will be sponsored by Fáilte Ireland, who works to support the long-term sustainable growth in tourism’s economic, social, cultural and environmental contribution to Ireland. The introduction of this category will give student travel journalists an outlet for their work to be recognised, and highlight the wide range of tourist opportunities at home and abroad. 

Submissions will be taken in the form of written articles, blog posts or videos. Students are required to submit one piece related to travel, preferably focused on travel in Ireland. The pieces must be produced for student journalism or be the work of a full-time student.

Judges will be looking for a uniqueness of voice and an appropriate tone, as well as staples of travel journalism including but not limited to compelling anecdotes and innovative use of photography/ video footage.

Check back on March 1st to enter this category.

The closing date for submissions is March 15th, 2023.
