Today we’re doing a bit of celebrating ourselves... after Downtown won ‘Best Supplement of the Year’ at the Local Ireland Media Awards 2019, sponsored by the National Lottery, held in Athlone.
Downtown Editor Eoghan Dinan said it was fantastic to see Downtown recognised with this award, and congratulated all the Downtown team on the success.
The chosen Downtown was the Jazz Downtown edition, published last October as a magazine special, showcasing the wonderful Guinness Cork Jazz Festival.
It engaged readers with interviews with the stars, and a graphic Monopoly board-style jazz trail featuring the venues featuring as part of the jazz festival.
Eoghan thanked the Downtown contributors of Don O’Mahony, Mike McGrath-Bryan, Ronan Leonard, Stevie G, graphic artist Dermot Ahern, and all those who helped with the supplement.
In his address, David Ryan, President, Local Ireland, said: “These awards are in recognition of the many talents that combine to produce our titles in both print and digital format every week. We have outstanding journalists, photographers, designers and advertising executives the length and breadth of the country and we are delighted to properly recognise their contributions to our industry.
