PROTECTION JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR (CONSUMER)'s Jess Sheldon collects the Award on behalf of Harvey Jones, from Legal & General Insurance's PR & Communications Director Nicola Hussey and Awards Host Marcus Brigstocke


By the time the judges got together for the final session for this category, two entries had emerged as potential winners. The result of the debate is back-to-back wins for Harvey Jones of the Sunday Express.

“All three articles Harvey submitted, on different types of protection insurance, were clear and balanced and very readable,” one judge remarked.

“The use of case studies was exemplary - illustrating the theme of the articles but not 'taking over',” noted another.
