2021 Justice Media Awards open for entries

The Law Society has announced the details of the Justice Media Awards 2021, and has invited entries for this year’s competition.

The virtual awards ceremony will take place Thursday, 24 June.

The awards recognise outstanding print and broadcast journalism that contributes to the public’s understanding of justice, the legal system, and legal issues.

2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the Justice Media Awards, the longest continuous media awards in Ireland.

The Society particularly encourages 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.

New student category

This year’s awards include a new category, 'Best Student Journalism', to recognise emerging talent and support the future of legal journalism.

The category is open to entries from second-level and third-level student journalists who have had their work published in Ireland.

This work must directly relate to the law, and publication can include, but is not limited to, a school magazine, college newspaper or student radio station.

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Tuesday, 6 April.

The full list of categories, entry forms and submission guidelines is on the Law Society website.
