2017 Winners


After a receiving close to 700 entries this year, the 2017 'Let's Talk about Drugs' National Youth Media Awards category winners and runners-up have been announced. Thanks to all of this year’s entrants for the hard work and creativity.

The standard was so high this year that we have decided to also provide a list of 'Honourable Mentions'. These are entries that were not winners or runners-up, but ones we think deserve a mention!


Thanks to the following guest judges: Stuart Clarke (Hotpress); Aoife Ní Shúilleabháin (Union of Second Level Students in Ireland); Ciaran D’Arcy (Irish Times) and Cathy Keenan (Youth Representative).
