Cherwell has been shortlisted for Publication of the Year by the Guardian Student Media Awards 2010.The shortlists were published this week in the Guardian newspaper and website. This year’s awards have been scaled down, meaning that there is just one category for all student magazines, papers and websites in the country. Out of over 600 entries, Cherwell is in the shortlist of five publications, from which the overall winner will be selected. Marta Szczerba, Editor of Cherwell in Hilary Term of 2010, said, “It’s no mystery: Cherwell kicked ass this year with creative content, fresh design and observant commentary. It’s great to know all our hard work has been recognised and OxStu, it’s official: we’re just better”.Oxford student journalism has enjoyed considerable success in the Guardian Student Media Awards this year, with www.thealligatoronline.com also appearing in the shortlist for Publication of the Year. Other Oxford students to be shortlisted are Oliver Moody for Writer of the Year, Mimi Kempton-Stewart for Digital Journalist of the Year, and Tom Rowley and Camilla Turner for Reporter of the Year. The winners and runners up for each category will be announced at an awards ceremony which will take place in London on 24th November 2010. The first prize for the winner of each category is one month of work experience at the Guardian, and the prize for the runner up is two weeks work experience. In 2008, Cherwell won the Guardian Student Media Award for ‘Student Website of the Year’, a category which has since been abolished.
