Audience Choice Award

About this award

The Shine Audience Choice Award is a new category in 2022 that rewards a piece of Irish media (print, online, or broadcast) that has impacted the Irish public and/or shaped the public conversation on mental ill health in Ireland. It is the only category where the public choose the winner.

In September, we asked members of the public to nominate pieces of media they felt were deserving of this award. The 10 pieces with the highest number of nominations were selected for the list below. Now you get to vote for your choice of winner.

Voting is now open and will close at midnight 31st October 2022.
