Freelance Felicity Hannah collects her Award from Head of Public relations, UK and europe at Vanguard Caroline Hancock and Awards Host Marcus Brigstocke


After the original round of scoring, three names emerged from the original quintet as potential winners. After plenty of discussion at the face-to-face judging session, it was Felicity Hannah who emerged triumphant for the second year in a row. 

In a highly competitive category covering a range of topics, the judges commended Felicity on “a superb portfolio”. 

Her work delivers a “combination of the human angle, speaking to people about their experiences, and practical takeaways... the latter is especially important for consumer-facing financial journalism,” one judge remarked. “The File on 4 investigation of the loan charge scandal is brilliant, dogged investigative journalism,” another judge noted. That documentary was produced by the investigative journalist Anna Meisel and edited by Gail Champion.
