Independent business journalists nominated for awards
Well-established and upcoming journalists from Independent News and Media's (INM) business team have been shortlisted for the 2015 UCD Smurfit School Business Journalist Awards.
Four journalists from INM have been shortlisted this year across four different categories: Charlie Weston (Specialist Business Reporter), John Mulligan (Business Interview), Gavin McLoughlin (Upcoming Journalist) and Richard Curran (Economic Commentator).
Now in its ninth year, the awards are sponsored by Eir and were established to honour excellence in Irish business journalism across print, broadcast and online.
Entries are assessed by a panel of independent judges.
The winner in each category will be named at an awards ceremony on November 30 and will each receive €1,000 prize money.
An additional two awards will be announced on the day: the Alumni Choice Award, based on a journalist's contribution to the field over the previous 12 months, and the Outstanding Achievement Award.
