It is with great excitement that we are sharing our latest update about the MLI Awards 2023.
The purpose of these awards is to raise awareness of the great media literacy work that is being done in Ireland and encourage involvement from a maximum number of stakeholders and anyone else interested in media literacy at local, regional, and national levels.
ALL projects are welcome – from beginner to advanced level. Outstanding projects will be recognised across four categories:
