Winner: Polly Jean Harrison, The Fintech Times

In its first year, this new category focusing on fintech was popular, resulting in a strong shortlist for the judges to consider. The discussion quickly focused on three journalists with the judges eventually agreeing that Polly Jean Harrison should be the inaugural winner.

“All three examples brought the topic to life in a relatable and educational way,” said one judge.

“I applaud Polly's penchant for going off the beaten track and sourcing and following up on non-mainstream stories – they are equally as important,” commented another.
