The most prestigious award at The National Student Media Award is up for grabs and this year it will be sponsored by one of Ireland’s most prestigious publications.

The Irish Times has sponsored this award for several years now and we are delighted that have returned once again to sponsor the coveted ‘Newspaper of the Year’ award.

Founded in 1859, the Irish Times newspaper has been an institution of top quality, Irish journalism throughout the country.

The Irish Times has been around for over a century and has always kept up with the times. The newspaper continues to have a modern journalism style and in 1994, it 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 delighted to have such a prestigious newspaper sponsoring this ‘Newspaper of the Year’ award 

We again thank The Irish Times for their sponsorship and wish the best of luck to all of our entrants at The National Student Media Awards 2021.
