Griffith joint second in Smedias 2015


Last Thursday 16th April,  at a gala awards ceremony in the Aviva stadium, over 400 students gathered with media celebrities from the world of news and entertainment to recognise quality student media at the Smedias – the Annual National Student Media Awards.

With its much bigger student body, Trinity College managed to win ten, while Griffith College media students finished the night level with DCU, and took home six of top prizes for the best student media in the country.

With over 1,000 entries, Griffith media journalism, photography and film students can be rightly proud of their achievements; we here in the Faculty of Journalism & Media Communications certainly are! Congratulations to all our winners (see details below) and to all our lecturing and administrative staff who run the best media faculty in the country.

Among the media workers and celebrities presenting the prizes were, Oliver Callan, Claire Byrne, Marty Morrissey, Barry Duggan, Ursula Halligan, and our very own Griffith College journalism graduate, Rose of Tralee, Maria Walsh.
