Critic Victorious!


Salient was placed runner up for Best Publication at the Aotearoa Students Press Awards (ASPAs) on Friday September 28th, losing to Otago University’s student magazine Critic, but beating Massey’s publication, Massive.

“I didn’t have high hopes for the year. But in the end by allowing my staff do all of the work, and just focusing on Facebook, somehow we go there in the end. Oh, and fuck Salient,” said Critic Editor, Joe Stockman

“It was a tough job judging as given the diversity of entries. Without any specific direction I took it upon myself to consider how the publications serve their constituency,” said John Baker, one of numerous judges.

Canta, from Canterbury University, won the award for Best Small Publication and a large number of other awards throughout the evening, and judges said it would have been a strong contender had it entered into the Best Publication category.

“We’re outraged, frankly, absolutely outraged. We will be launching our own investigation.” said Salient co-editor Ollie Neas.

“Fuck it all,” said other editor, Asher Emanuel.

Salient did win the ASPAS for Best Cover and Best Design and was highly commended for its website.

Former News Editor Stella Blake-Kelly received an award for Best Paid News while Arts Editor Adam Goodall won another for Best Review.

Feature Writer Fairooz Samy was runner up for Best Feature Writer, and News Intern Shilpa Bhim was highly commended for unpaid news.
