Two Kingston University publications have been shortlisted in the Publication of the Year category of the Guardian‘s Student Media Awards 2011. Student newspaper the River, which won the award last year, and student magazine Mouth, are up against publications from Imperial College London, Oxford University and York University.
The awards, now in their 33rd year, offer work experience prizes in recognition of a “top quality publication”. In the Publication of the Year category, the judges Alan Rushbridger, Ian Katz, Katharine Viner and Kate Reardon are looking for “flair, originality and an intelligent mix of wide ranging coverage driven by a clear vision, all wrapped up in a strong distinct style”. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony in November.
Kingston journalism lecturer Adam Westbrook‘s film Press Day, gives the inside story on how the River is produced:
