Press Pass – How To Register

All Transition Year classes in Ireland are eligible to register for Press Pass.

You can register your school to take part in the 2013 programme here.

When registering please make sure that the individual you list as the main contact person will be available in the run up to and during the period of Press Pass.

Press Pass runs for a two week period during which registered classes will receive a guidebook, newspapers and access to online resources, all free of charge.

Following this period registered schools will have the opportunity to enter students into the national Press Pass writing competition. Entrants can enter work in a range of categories:

  • Features
  • Sport
  • News
  • Comment/Opinion
  • Photojournalism

Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Dublin in spring 2014. The inaugural Press Pass awards ceremony was attended by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny who presented the awards to students.
