Headline (a programme of Shine) are delighted to announce details of this years Mental Health Media Awards. The Awards celebrate stories that breakdown stereotypes, engage audiences & enhance the public’s understanding of mental health issues. Journalists, producers, and content decision makers often don’t realise the role they may have played in a person’s recovery from mental ill health. We want to recognise that. Categories include content from local, regional and national media, along with online and digital only platforms. This is the first year multiple broadcasting categories, visual media and categories appropriate for podcasts are available. You can find details about key dates, category descriptions and entry rules at headline.ie/awards/
Submissions open September 9th with Award ceremony December 4th.
Headline is Ireland’s national programme for responsible reporting and representation of mental health and suicide in the media.
