Irish Examiner Farming Editor Rachel Martin has received the award for Best Journalistic Content of the Year at the Better Farming Awards.
Ms Martin was one of 63 finalists from all over the country at the awards ceremony which took place on Thursday night at Heritage Hotel, Killenard.
Her article in May, was on the cost for the environment of poor animal health.
Her latest award celebrates a journalist who has written or recorded content highlighting work done on improving Irish agriculture within the parameters of environmental, social and/or economic sustainability.
"As the Irish agricultural industry faces many difficult challenges, the Better Farming Awards want to recognise and celebrate those who have embraced these challenges and are driving the sector to a more sustainable future," the event organisers said.
Ms Martin's award was one of 20 presented at the event, hosted by Ivan Yates, with other accolades including Innovator Farmer of the Year, Best Agritech Products, and Best Food Producers of the Year, among others.
The event "rewards initiatives, research and practices that are helping Irish agriculture meet its economic, social and environmental challenges," said the organisers.
"They go beyond the headlines to recognise the real difference achieved by those who have excelled in various areas of agriculture."
Last year, Ms Martin also won the prestigious Agri Guild Journalism Award for her writing on climate change.
