Financial Times Assistant Editor and Columnist Michael Skapinker was named best Business Commentator at the 2012 Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards. Now in its fourth year, the awards recognise the UK’s finest commentary in print and online.
Julia Hobsbawm, chair and CEO of Editorial Intelligence, commented “Business Commentator of the Year is one of the most coveted and hardest to choose because there is so much of it. The judges are looking always for distinction, flair, individuality and covering the topics at hand in forensic detail.”
The Financial Times picked up seven honours in the second annual Lovie Awards, recognising excellence and innovation in the European internet community.
The Financial Times HTML5-based web app scooped three silver awards in the News App, News App (tablet) and Mobile Innovation (tablet) categories. Previously, the FT web app had also won the 2012 Best Mobile Innovation for Publishing Award at the Global Mobile Awards, as well as the 2012 Meffy Awards for Best Publisher on Mobile.
