London Student shortlisted seven times in SPA awards

London Student – the student media co-operative I co-founded in May 2015 – has been shortlisted seven times in the Student Publication Association awards!

SPA award

We were shortlisted for Best Newcomer, Best Reporter, twice for Best Feature, twice for Best Use of Digital Media, and I’m up for an Outstanding Commitment award.

It comes four months after we were shortlisted for student media startup of the year at the Guardian student media awards.

Co-operative secretary Kitty Wenham said:

It’s wonderful to see the work London Student has done recognised within student media. I’ve watched it grow and evolve in many ways since joining in September, and I’m honoured to be a part of an organisation that prides itself on being different, and excited to see where the creativity of the people here will take us next.

And Emma Yeomans, who was shortlisted for Best Reporter and Best Feature, said:

It’s a huge honour to be nominated, and I’m so proud of this team. The dedication and hard work that London Student journalists give never fails to inspire me, and I look forward to working with these talented students for many more years.
