FT journalism recognised at 2016 EI Comment Awards

Today at the eighth annual Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards, the Financial Times took home three prestigious prizes for its journalism.

The Financial Times’ comment pages scooped the Comment Pages of the Year prize for the second year running.

FT deputy editor Roula Khalaf won the Foreign Commentator of the Year award for her regular columns on global business and politics, and FT management editor Andrew Hill took home the prize for Business Commentator of the Year.

The awards celebrate the achievements of ‘the UK’s finest and most influential print and online commentators and their editors’.

The wins are the latest in a string of successes for FT journalism.
