We are honoured and thrilled to announce The Irish Times has once again agreed to sponsor this year’s 2020 National Student Media Awards ‘Newspaper of the Year’ category. The Irish Times over its long history has built itself a reputation as a distinguished and reputable newspaper.
Since its founding, the Irish Times has committed to keeping up to date with modern journalism trends while maintaining their high standard of writing. With print media in steady decline, they have shown their commitment to growing their digital circulation and reaching out to younger readers by supporting events like the National Student Media Awards. Their sponsorship of the “Newspaper Of The Year” category demonstrates that their interest in students goes beyond seeing them as readers but as voices who want to and should be heard.
We are delighted that such a well-respected newspaper will once again be sponsoring the ‘Newspaper Of The Year’ Award for 2020, paving the way for student newspapers to get the attention they deserve. The award that sees each college’s flagship publication compete for the honour that is the title of ‘Newspaper of the Year’.
We would like to thank The Irish Times again for their sponsorship and wish the best of luck to all of our entrants. Applications are open from the 2-14 of March
