The Pulse, the student newspaper of the University of Central Lancashire has been shortlisted for ‘Best Newcomer Publication’ at the Student Publication Awards, a national awards ceremony celebrating the achievements of student media.
The Best Newcomer Publication award ‘recognises the best new publication in student member. Publications must be no more than three years old at the time the awards closes. It [takes] into account quality of content, relevance to the student community and achievements in other awards.’
UCLan SU Media Officer and The Pulse Editor-in-Chief Hannah Mason said,
“I’m so proud of the team. The editors have worked exceptionally hard this year in The Pulse’s first year and I’m so excited that we’ve made the shortlist for Best New Publication.
“Who knows if we’ll win or not but to be considered as one of the best in the country is a massive achievement and the editorial team really deserve this recognition.”
This comes just after two Culture Editor Caitlin Mclaren and Politics Editor Joe Young were shortlisted for UCLan SU Media Volunteer of the Year, and Lifestyle Editor Kirsty Moody and Deputy Politics Editor Laura Creighton were shortlisted for UCLan SU Best Media Newcomer.
