The Shortlist

Andrew Penman, Daily Mirror   

The judges said: “A fine example of a reporter, and his paper, being prepared to take on the big boys in the interests of their readers. Impressive work.”

Dan McCrum, Financial Times   

The judges said: “A remarkable piece of investigative journalism that exposed massive fraud and led to the downfall of a rogue company.”

John Arlidge, The Sunday Times Magazine          

The judges said: “John Arlidge’s interviews – with Carlos Ghosn, Sharon White and James Dyson – were unmissable. The exclusive interview and the account of the midnight run of the former Nissan CEO is simply a great read.”

Katie Morley, The Telegraph      

The judges said: “Winning back £2m for wronged readers is real can-do journalism that makes newspapers hugely more relevant and valuable to readers. Professional, knowledgeable persistence at its best.”

Rob Davies, The Guardian

The judges said: “Rob Davies’ work on the ticket tout and gambling sectors have dominated the news agenda outside of Covid. Strong stories with long-lasting impact.”

Tom Witherow, Daily Mail

The judges said: “Reporting that shone a light on the most unethical corners of the gambling industry. Brilliant investigative work dealing with a modern-day scourge that will resonate with lots of readers.”
