Awards & Competitions

The SPA organises some of the most prestigious awards for student journalists in the UK and Ireland.

The SPA Regional Awards take place every autumn, while the SPA National Awards are held in the spring, culminating at #SPANC.

They are judged by a mix of our Trustees who are all experienced journalists, and others working in the industry – previously from titles including the Press Association, Sky News, gal-dem, Metro, The Telegraph, The Times, i, Daily Mail and HuffPost UK.

You can find information about other awards via JournoResources.
