Student Radio Awards 2022 – full winners list

The University of Sunderland’s community radio station Spark has won Gold in the Best Station category at this year’s Student Radio Awards.

Held annually since 1995, the awards serve both to celebrate the diversity of the content and talent in student radio and audio community, and to help launch the next generation of radio talent into the radio industry.

Judged by nearly 200 industry-appointed judges, hundreds of student entries, spanning over a dozen categories, are whittled down to Bronze, Silver and Gold winners.

The awards are supported by BBC Sounds and Global, and were given out at an event on Wednesday evening in London.
