The Student Publications Association (SPA) held their annual awards ceremony and conference last night (Saturday May 6) and three of our reporters were lucky enough to attend the event.
Formed in 2012 at the University of Southampton, SPA is the largest student media association which celebrates and awards journalism students and their publications across the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Here at SR News, we are absolutely delighted to announce that our editor, Sophie Dishman, has won the Highly Commended Award for Best Reporter.
Sophie said: “I’m absolutely honoured to accept this award as I couldn’t have done it without the support of the SR News team, the MediaHUB and the support from staff at the University of Sunderland.
“The conference has been an amazing experience and it has definitely kept my passion for journalism alive and has given me even more ideas!”
We are very proud of our student reporters and are sure they will continue to deliver passionate, informative journalism in the future!
