The third annual National Smarter Travel Student Media Awards ceremony took place on Thursday April 6th, at the Belltable Theatre, Limerick. As part of the awards, students from across the country were encouraged to submit entries promoting Smarter Travel through various forms of media: text, graphics, video, interactive content, animation and audio.

The event consisted of screening all student submissions under three categories: a slideshow of all poster entries, a compilation of all video entries, and a compilation of all audio entries. First, second and third place prize winners for each category were announced following each category screening.


Second place winners of the video category: Robert O Connor and Louise Berg

UL Environmental Society member, Carmen Vitour,  with Donal Kearns and Patryk Lewandowski, were awarded 1st place in the video category. Entitled ‘Yours Skatefully’, their video highlights skateboarding as being a great form of active Smarter Travel that doesn’t receive as much publicity in comparison to walking and cycling.

Another UL Environmental Society member, Louise Berg and Robert O Connor were awarded 2nd place in the video category for their beautiful animation entitled ‘Smarter Travel with Billy’, about Billy who decides to convert to sustainable travel.
