Come to the Best Ever Student Journalism Conference, #SPANC17!

A friendly reminder that tickets for this year's Student Publication Assocation National Conference will be closing for sales on April 18th at 6pm.

What's the Student Publication Association National Conference I hear you cry? Well, only the conference with the best hashtag in the world, #SPANC17.

It's a weekend long event of student journalists from across the country and we've got talks, workshops, and masterclasses booked in from people from BuzzFeed,, The Times, The Telegraph, The BBC, and more.

Everyone Enter the 2017 SPA Awards!

Just a quick note to say the 2017 Student Publication Association are now open until March 20 and it would be great to see some winners from The University of Kent this year!

It's pretty much the only full set of awards students can enter their journalism too now, after the closure of the Guardian Student Media Awards last year.

National Student Journalism Awards Close in 5 Days


The Student Publication Association's National Awards close in just FIVE DAYS.

There are 16 catergories ranging from best comment to best news story, jugded by industry professionals - and they are , of course, free to enter.

They'll be awarded at a glittering ceremony in April and I'd love to see some Kent entries!

Previously CfJ students have done pretty well in the awards:
