Past competitors include James Joyce and Count John McCormack as well as more contemporary names such as pianist John O’Conor, singer Regina Nathan and comedian Risteard Cooper.

An Post took home the best arts portfolio award 2015 for their investment in arts and cultural initiatives connected with the 1916 centenary celebrations, including the opening of the Witness History exhibition in the GPO. RTE was presented with a special 25th Anniversary Award which acknowledged their huge contribution to the arts over many years, including the ‘RTE Supporting the Arts’ programme and The Road to the Rising in 2016.
