Four Financial Times journalists have won prizes in two sets of awards for what their editor described as an “extraordinary collection of talent”.
Martin Wolf, senior economics commentator, was named Newspaper Feature Writer of the Year in the Workworld Media Awards 2003, and management editor Michael Skapinker won the members award.
These awards aim to recognise excellence in the workplace, management and business journalism and acknowledge its contribution to the world of work.
Private equity correspondent Peter Smith won the prize for the most outstanding contribution at the Venture Capital Journalist of the Year Awards. Deputy personal finance editor Pauline Skypala won the personal finance category.
The venture capital awards recognise journalists’ endeavours to further the knowledge of, and promote the concept of, private equity in the UK and Europe.
Editor Andrew Gowers said: “This impressive set of awards underlines the strengths of FT journalism across a wide range of specialist areas. They show the extraordinary collection of talent writing for the paper and its website.”
“The FT and FT.com are now winning more awards than any other British-based news organisation,” he claimed.
