Winner:  Sam Barker, Mirror Online

Presented with a high-calibre shortlist from which to choose a winner, this category took the judging panel a while to resolve, with The Mirror’s Sam Barker emerging as the winner.

“Sam's articles really standout due to their uniqueness,” commented one judge. “He has uncovered issues not seen by others, covering them in an easy-to-digest and engaging way that enlightens and interests the reader. The articles are also well-researched, including exclusive stats that he obtained to quantify the issue.”
