Phantom Shortlisted for 3 SPA Awards
By Em Morley
We’ve got some great news for you all! On Wednesday the shortlists for this year’s SPA (Student Publication Association) Awards were announced, and The Phantom has made it into three categories! We’re up for an award for Best New Publication, Best Website, and Best Publication. The whole team is very excited about this news, and we’re feeling hopeful that the hard work that you have all put in to your contributions to our newspaper and website will have paid off!
Phantom Media provides the latest news in sports, entertainment, what’s going on in our community, society news, and feature pieces. We aim to keep you up to date on anything and everything that is relevant to you as students, as Derby residents, and as human beings who have a right to know what’s going on in the world. We also offer the opportunity for anyone to submit posts on topics of interest that they believe others would like to know more about.
The award for Best New Publication will go to a publication that is no older than three years, taking into account how relevant their content is to their student community, the quality of the pieces they have published, and achievements in other awards.
For Best Website, we will be judged on the design of the Phantom website and the content we publish. They will also look at the overall impact we have had on our student community, and the engagement we’ve had from you all.
Best Publication again looks at the relevance of the content to the student community, the quality of the content published, and achievements across the other categories.
Thanks to all of you for supporting us and making this possible, and whatever the results, we are proud to be a part of the University of Derby student community!
