2015 UCD Smurfit School Business Journalist Awards Shortlist announced

Date: 13 Nov 2015


UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School has announced the shortlisted business journalists for the 2015 Business Journalist Awards. The awards, now in the 9th year, are run in conjunction with the Business Journalist Association of Ireland (BJAI) and are sponsored by open eir. These awards are designed to honor excellence in Irish business journalism across the media spectrum, with entries, submitted by nominees themselves or on behalf of journalists by editors or peers, adjudicated by an independent panel of judges, comprising business, journalism, economic and academic leaders.

Commenting on the awards, Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh, Dean, UCD Business, and a member of the judging panel said: “These awards are an important initiative for UCD Smurfit School to recognise the individual efforts of the business journalist community who contribute to our collective understanding of important business, financial and economic issues that shape our lives. Since the awards were established nine years ago the media landscape has changed considerably but it is clear from the quality of the entries year-on-year that an exceptionally high standard of business reporting is an increasingly vital aspect of our information age.”

Since their launch, the Business Journalist Awards have received over 1000 entries from business journalists across print, broadcast and online media outlets in Ireland. The winners of each category will be honoured at an awards ceremony on November 30th and will each receive €1,000 prize money.
