Regional press writers given chance to grab share of £23,000 prize pot

Regional writers who cover all things finance-related are being invited to enter a competition with a prize pot of more than £20,000.

The Bradford & Bingley Personal Finance Media Awards are open to journalists working for newspapers, trade and consumer publications and broadcast organisations, and there is a dedicated category for Regional Journalist of the Year.

Last year the award went to Adrienne McGill from The News Letter in Belfast, who scooped £1,500 prize money.

The same prize is on offer this year, with an additional £1,000 for the runner-up.

The closing date for entries is August 30.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony held at the Great Eastern Hotel in London on October 31.
