Yesterday marked the long-awaited shortlist announcements for the Student Publication Association Awards 2016.
After a very late Tuesday night going through all the fabulous entries, the SPA graced us with a very exciting (and impressive) shortlist. And guess what? Some of our fantastic writers are up for awards!
Including (drum roll please):
Oliver Price for Best Reporter Tom Boon for Best Student Photographer Aimone Sharif for Best Sports Coverage
And finally, our Head of Print, Shelby Loasby, has been shortlisted for the Outstanding Commitment Award! She’s brilliant isn’t she?
To our shortlisted members… you all deserve it! Well done! Stay tuned for our very own Trident Media Awards nominees and hopefully some SPA winners at #SPANC16!
Here’s some of our favourite #SPAShortlist tweets…
Could be doing coursework but nope. Sat here refreshing the #SPAShortlist page like they’re about to drop a surprise Beyoncé album instead. — Huriyah. (@RiiYah) 2 March 2016
What was once a simple hashtag is quickly descending into sleep-deprived BFF situation and I love it #SPAShortlist #SPANC16 — Emily (@emgiblett) 2 March 2016
Next up, Commitment! (I struggle with commitment). @SPAJournalism #SPAShortlist — Ben Howgill (@benhowgill) 2 March 2016

Of course we could still be the biggest losers on the stage if we don’t win. #DanceMoms #SPAShortlist #HYPE — Rebecca Pinnington (@beckypinners) 3 March 2016
