We particularly encourage entries from journalists from diverse backgrounds, and entries covering topics relating to the law that increase representation for gender equality, diversity and inclusion issues in Ireland.

Submission guidelines

Please note:

  • If you are entering more than one article, link or broadcast piece in an entry, you must highlight the most important piece and number each piece thereafter by priority to be judged to a maximum of five pieces of content.
  • If your audio-visual entry exceeds 20 minutes, please indicate time makers for the best 20 minutes of footage or audio that relates directly to the law to be judged. If this is not specified, the first 20 minutes will be judged.
