Protection Journalist of the Year (B2B)


Two journalists soon emerged as front-runners in this category from the original quintet of shortlistees. After plenty of debate amongst the judges it was COVER’s Adam Saville who landed the honours.

“Three varied articles demonstrating an array of talents from Adam, but always combining interesting writing and solid journalism,” one judge remarked. “Impressive range and versatility, especially given that Adam is something of a one-man team. He’s included a highly emotive and personal piece as well as one covering a fairly complex and technical issue concerning the financial ombudsman service. Definitely my idea of the winner,” another judge added.
