Awards and Links
We have always packed a big punch for a smaller publication, and we are hugely excited to have just had news of further commendation for our work.
We have been shortlisted for a historic FOUR categories at the Student Publication Association (SPA) National Awards in 2023!
These are for Best Student Photographer (Reagan Yip), Best Project or Initiative (for Project Winter, with Impact Magazine), Best Sports Section, and the prestigious Best Publication!
Our history has also been award-rich.
In 2020, we were delighted to be named NTSU’s Society of the Year and also win Best New Publication at the SPA awards ceremony for the Midlands region.
The SPA National Awards also recognised us in 2022, with a nomination for Best Magazine Design.
We also enjoy strong links with local and international media organisations. We’ve worked closely with Nottinghamshire Live, Gedling Eye and Left Lion, with several alumni going on to work for these organisations too.
In 2020, we collaborated with REFINE Magazine of Temple University in Philadelphia as part of our joint US election coverage. We’re always looking to extend our links!
