RTÉ's Adam Maguire has scooped the 'Audio Story of the Year' award at this year's UCD Smurfit School Business Journalist Awards.

Mr Maguire was recognised for his audio series on inflation, which was broadcast on RTÉ Radio One's 'Today With Claire Byrne' programme.

The series titled 'Inflation Shopping Basket' looked at why your weekly shop is getting more expensive.

To help make sense of what was going on, he took a closer look at a selection of everyday grocery items from toilet paper - to tomatoes.

He explained how each one has seen significant price increases, but each has a different story to tell as to the reasons why.

Other winners at today's ceremony in Dublin included Peter O'Dwyer and Lorcan Allen of the Business Post, who won Business News Story of the Year for their submission, "Government prepares to concede on corporate tax rate of 15%".

Maria Delaney of Noteworthy, Ian Curran of The Journal, and Sean Pollock of the Sunday Independent won Business Features of the Year.

Niall Sargent of Noteworthy, Rory Winters, Luke Butterly and Tommy Greene of The Detail, and Ella McSweeney of The Guardian, Noteworthy / Journal Media won the Business Analyst of the Year award.

Fearghal O'Connor, of the Sunday Independent and Mediahuis Ireland scooped the prize for Business Interview of the Year – for his interview with Richard O'Halloran, "'I felt abandoned’ – Businessman O’Halloran tells of China ordeal".

Elaine Burke of Silicon Republic was awarded the Women in Business Journalism Award, while Cáit Caden of the Irish Examiner won the Upcoming Journalist of the Year award.
