Winner: Marc Shoffman
With so many freelancers plying their trade in the financial space this is always a competitive category to win. As it turned out, one name had already emerged from the shortlist after the first round of judging. When the panellists convened to make their final decision, it was a relatively straightforward task to go on and name Marc Shoffman as the winner for the second year in a row.
“Marc is a top-notch freelancer with an eye for an exclusive and the journalist nous to dig into tough topics, get results and convey that well in his writing,” one judge commented. “A clear stand-out with excellent investigations into issues that are likely to impact many readers, with evidence of enacting real change,” said another.
