  3. Alas scotty that happened a while ago, the winners have been decided. There are some twitter comments from the ppl that judged magazine and website categories but nothing that really merits a search.

  6. It is nice to see that York has received recognition for its student media, however I think that mentioning the Yorker in such a negative light is unnecessarily cynical and an unsupportive approach to York media as a whole.

    I think the sentence is purely factual, especially considering that this story was published when nominations were still emerging. It’s only cynical if you’re reading it in a bitter light, right?
