An announcement concerning the Smedias 2022

In line with our editorial stance supporting the boycott of the Irish Times, Trinity News will not be submitting an entry for the National Student Media Awards Best Newspaper category this year, due to that newspaper’s sponsorship of the award.

The Smedias are an important part of the Irish student media scene and the awards ceremony is one of the highlights of the year. Trinity News will be making entries in other categories, and we hope that an alternate sponsor can be found in future years for this category.

In lieu of paying the application fee for this award, a donation will be made to the Small Trans Library Dublin Fund, which provides material relief to trans people facing financial hardship.

Trinity News continues to stand in solidarity with the trans community at a time when they face coordinated hostility from so many quarters, and encourages everyone to join and uphold the boycott of the Irish Times.
