The Media Excellence Committee has been hard at work narrowing down all private media releases from the period of June 1st to September 30 to the Top Five (there was actually a tie, so we have a Top Six!), through a nomination and voting process that we hoped would determine the best of the best. Thank you to all committee members for their work this week in making this happen. And now, without further ado, here are the winners, in reverse order!


Article Title: Which Honoured Citizen Has Been the Most Awarded Post-Conferral?

Article Title: Opinion: F/S Deserves Public Hearing

Author: @McEntire

Why is it Worthy: Strong piece on a big update, points at specific polling questions on the topic, asks proper questions about what should be done, and what happens if we do what. It also does perhaps the most important part of an opinion piece; urges action convincingly.


Article Title: 4th Europeian Census

Outlet: Another View

Why is it Worthy: The fourth installment in a long-running collection of census data, including many insights into Europeian opinions and demographics. Notes barrier to higher office in the minds of newer members.


Article Title: Why Are We In the IRC?

Outlet: Monkey’s Musings

Author: @Monkey

Why is it Worthy: Asks an increasingly relevant question with great data to back up the questions being asked and the points being made.

We hope you will take the time to read (or reread!) these amazing articles, and keep them in mind for the EuroChoice 2021 ceremony next year, to cement their place in media history.
