Winner of the 2012 Headline award for student journalism.

Conor McGinnity DCU student: RTE Radio 1 My Dad’s Depression. A brave, moving and revealing examination of the effect of depression on a family, a much neglected and under-reported issue. It highlights the very many challenges of coping with mental ill-health, but also helps to de-stigmatise many perceptions and contains important information on coping strategies. Overall, this is a beautifully-crafted and textured piece of documentary-making: a tour de force.
