Victory for Jemma and the Medwire

May
11

Congratulations and raucous applause, please, for Jemma Collins for her achievements in the 2014 Student Publication Association (SPA) Awards. Jem, a third year student on the BA in Journalism, won first prize in the Outstanding Commitment category and was highly commended in the Best Reporter category. These victories,  judged by a panel including Nick Petrie, Deputy Head of News Development at The Times and James Thornhill of the National Student, reward Jem's work as editor of The Medwire, Kent and Medway's only independent student newspaper. The SPA is the national body for all the UK's university student newspapers and competition was fierce. Well done, Jem. Trebles all round. The picture shows Jem accepting her prizes.
