LONDON, 30 April 2015 – The winners of the tenth annual Towers Watson Media Awards were announced last night at the Getty Images Gallery in London. The awards celebrate excellence in business journalism in the areas of human resources (HR), pensions, benefits and institutional investment.

The awards programme consisted of nine topic-specific journalism categories judged by an expert panel, which included senior industry figures such as Mary Humiston, Group HR Director at Rolls-Royce; Stella Chaplin, Head of Pension at Atkins Global; Chris Wagstaff, Investment Committee Chairman of MNRPF; and Arthur Walford, Chairman of the Bupa Pension Scheme. In addition, three new publication of the year awards were decided by public vote.

Paul Morris, regional leader for Towers Watson EMEA, said: “I congratulate the winners and highly commended journalists as the calibre of entries was once again extremely high. The business media has a vital role to play as a platform for sharing ideas and best practice, and for debating the important issues that impact our working lives. The hard work and skill that goes into producing high-quality articles is fully deserving of recognition with these awards.”

The annual awards attracted over 100 entries from journalists while more than 1,000 votes were received for the publication of the year awards.
