Last night, the Financial Times was honoured in the Digital Media Excellence: News and Current Affairs category at the 2022 Press Gazette Future of Media Awards

The judges praised the FT’s “expertly explained” coverage of the war in Ukraine, and ability to combine “frontline journalistic bravery and rigour with innovative digital storytelling.” They credited the immersive visual explainer on Russia’s military missteps and the Ukrainian resistance, which combined maps, open source reporting and expert analysis. 

FT backed Sifted was also triumphant, winning the award for Digital Media Excellence in the Specialist/ B2B sector. Judges commended Sifted for using “strong, multi-platform journalism to create a community and build a sustainable business”.
