Congratulations go to Michael Klimes of Money Marketing, whose strong set of initial scores made him the person to beat in the shortlist of six for this category when the judges convened.

“I really enjoyed reading the Carey feature; engaging, colourful storytelling,” observed one judge. The story “honed into the finer details before broadening out to show the impact on the wider market”. “Michael submitted an interesting range of topics using different tactics and techniques to inform his audience,” said another.
