An aspiring journalist from Dublin was among those highly commended in the first YJA Young Blogger of the Year Competition.

Cathal McCahey, 21, was longlisted for the inaugural prize for his video profile on Ireland’s 49er Olympic hopefuls Robert Dickson and Sean Waddilove, produced for Dublin City University’s campus TV news programme.

McCahey was recognised among a talented young group whose entries displayed skills from video to photography, writing blogs and ebooks, and even painting.

This year’s top prize went to Monique and Ollie Vennis-Ozanne from Fareham in Hampshire, UK for their video on last year’s Ovington Junior Inland Sailing Championship, which impressed the judges with its mix of drone footage, crew interviews and running commentary.

The siblings received their award at the RYA Dinghy Show in Alexandra Palace last Saturday 3 March.

Entries are now open for the 2018 YJA Young Blogger Competition, which is open to any aspiring journalist aged 21 or younger on 31 December 2018.
