Welcome to the first Splash Sunday of the New Year. We hope everyone had a great Christmas, and enjoyed some well-earned time relaxing.
And a big shout out to everyone who’s already back to work publishing some really great journalism. I’m still making my way through the chocolate coins, so hats off to you all. Here are the articles we picked from this week – enjoy!
The University Times
In my last committee article around Christmas, I wrote about how student media offers unparalleled opportunities for sports journalists, and this is a fantastic example of someone taking advantage of exactly that.
I’m always shocked how few people have heard of SAD. It’s a worthwhile read if you haven’t heard about it.
You never know, you may have friends suffering from SAD and it might just explain their behaviour.
I really identify with this piece – I found it really hard to find time to read at University, but there’s nothing more distracting than immersing yourself in a good book.
“When I walked outside the roads were filled with thick smoke.” A great example of breaking news reporting from Epigram with effective use of quotes and embedded content.
Read about what happened in this well written match report from Exeposé’s Michael Jones.
A great piece by Hamish Inglis.
