A GROUNDBREAKING collaboration between print and digital media on the Anglo Tapes story helped win the Scoop of the Year award for the Irish Independent at the National Newspaper of Ireland Awards.
It was just one of seven prizes for the Irish Independent, the 'Sunday Independent' and Independent.ie as the group again dominated the awards.

The prize for Best Foreign Coverage went to Jason O'Brien of the Irish Independent and Independent.ie for his coverage from war-torn Syria.
