Orbital Magazine receives five nominations in Student Publication Association Awards

Orbital Magazine has been nominated for five Student Publication Association awards, it was announced yesterday evening. The short-lists for the association’s prestigious annual awards were announced in nail biting fashion in a five hour live tweeting session.

The magazine has been nominated in the Best Design, Best Website and Best Publication categories, while Jessie Beach Thomas and Yasmeen Frasso received individual nominations in the Best Photographer category.

Orbital Magazine Editor, Laura Denham, said of the short-lists “I’m so incredibly pleased that the hard work of all our journalists, photographers and board members has been recognised in this year’s Student Publication Association awards.

“When I became Editor the areas I really wanted to improve were our design, website and photography, so to have been nominated in all of those categories is absolutely amazing. Particular congratulations to Jessie and Yasmeen who thoroughly deserve their individual nominations for their dedication this year!”

The winners will be announced at the Student Publication Association National Conference in Loughborough on 9-11th of April. Good luck to all those who have been nominated!
