Stephen Maunder, Which? collects his Award from OpenMoney Co-Founder and CEO Anthony Morrow and Awards Host Marcus Brigstocke


During judging, one journalist quickly emerged as the winner from our shortlist of six entries. Congratulations to Stephen Maunder of Which? for coming out on top for his entry, which delivered three examples of stories that “provided valuable help to first-time buyers during the pandemic”.

“Stephen has put a lot of effort into assessing the Help to Buy scheme and was not put off by the lack of official information,” commented one judge. He undertakes “good research and has the ability to present information in an easy way”, noted another.
