This was the seventh year of the annual awards, which is run by Editorial Intelligence.

"It’s been an exemplary 12 months for UK comment journalism across the media landscape, from the general election at home, to political upheaval abroad; a changing media landscape, to violent attacks on free expression, there is a vibrancy of material to be covered.” said Sir Anthony Seldon, chair of judges.
