Protection Journalist of the Year (Consumer)


This category developed into an extremely close-run affair with no fewer than four of the five shortlisted names in with a chance of winning the award after the judges completed their initial set of scores. Once they got together to scrutinise the entries in greater detail, however, it was Harvey Jones’ submissions that eventually prevailed.

“All three of Harvey’s stories were excellent. He explained different forms of health insurance in a balanced, easy-to-understand way that was right on point for his consumer readership,” one judge commented. “Harvey’s submissions were well-written and included plenty of good examples including factors such as cost for extra reader relevance. They also included tips and steers that were very useful for anyone navigating what can be a very complicated market to weigh up,” added another.
