Independent News and Media group Technology Editor Adrian Weckler has been awarded the David Manley media prize.

The awards, named after a former Dublin chamber of commerce president, recognises journalists who give "ongoing and significant" coverage to entrepreneurship. They were set up in 2002 "to nurture Ireland's entrepreneurial spirit in the business, arts and social spheres".

Since then, a fund has provided over €1m to help emerging entrepreneurs, as well as recognising journalistic excellence.
