Recent Graduate Sandra Di Francesco

Master of Arts (Media and Communication) at Swinburne University

We first met Sandra at a YAJA networking event in Melbourne.

Sandra is a recent graduate and a talented journalist currently looking for work opportunities in the media industry.

When we received a media invitation from The PR Group to write about Redbubble's Made in House Pop-Up Exhibition - Melbourne, we thought this would be a great opportunity for Sandra.

We put her in contact with The PR Group to discuss the details.

Her article "Profile of Redbubble artist Ruta Dumalakaite" became a YAJA entry and - like all other entries - was also published on the Art News Portal at, as well as in news feeds and on all related social channels.

Feedback from The PR Group on working with YAJA: "The YAJA awards is such a great initiative for students so thanks again for the opportunity and thanks for being so responsive too!"
