Submissions, Shortlists, Judging

The 2022 Headlinemoney Awards celebrate brilliant journalism and top-flight communications from across the UK’s financial press and media. The Awards comprise categories both for individual journalists (Consumer and B2B) and media outlets covering different aspects of the financial marketplace. There are also trophies for individuals and press teams working in financial PR, media relations and communications.

A key aspect of the Awards is that all the winners are decided by their peers following an extensive submission, shortlisting and judging process.
