The DCU Media Production Society (MPS) held its annual Hybrid Awards at The Helix last Monday.
The awards highlight the best in student media across the academic year. In all there were twenty awards handed out on the night across varied disciplines such as radio, television and print.
The awards were hosted by Kevin McGahern from popular RTE show Republic of Telly. Each category was judged by an industry professional successful in that particular field.
Notable judges included 2fm’s Rick O’Shea for Arts/Feature show of the year and the Irish Independent’s GAA correspondent Colm Keys who judged the Sports Journalist of the Year category.
Some of the twenty judges were DCU alumni. All judges commented on the consistently high quality of the submitted work within their discipline.
This year saw the highest number of entrants for the awards. Judges were faced with the task of whittling down the large amount of submitted material to just a few shortlisted candidates.
