Journalism Excellence Award

Eduardo Galeano* once stated: “I am grateful to journalism for waking me up to the realities of the world.”

With this spirit in mind, the Irish Red Cross Journalism Excellence Award has been established to honour a journalist who has shined a spot light on a humanitarian issue or cause or who is committed to highlighting social injustices in Ireland or abroad.

Nominees for this award must be Irish or based in Ireland and have had their work published or broadcast over the last 24 months through a recognised media channel.

*Eduardo Hughes Galeano – Uruguayan journalist, writer and novelist
