Everyone loves an underdog…

Who would have guessed it? Kingston University’s paper won Publication of the Year at the Guardian Student Media Awards 2010. So we’re not slugging away in the newsroom anymore and, unfortunately, it’s the newbies who are cashing in on our ‘fame’ around campus, but it is our year that won it. Hah! I can’t believe it, I am an award winning journalist.

Congrats to the journalism class of  2010, we all deserve a pat on the back.
