tech journalist of the year award
sponsored by Luther Pendragon

A fast-moving world like technology requires agile journalists that understand the tech space and have the ability to cover the wide range of topics and industries right across the sector.

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly accelerated our shift to a digital world, meaning the spotlight is firmly on tech – a trend that is certainly not likely to wane any time soon. Never before have we been so reliant on tech journalists to help navigate the ever-evolving world of tech, providing insights and breaking down the complexities of the tech eco system. 

Our four shortlisted journalists have done an outstanding job of providing incisive, accurate and up to date commentary on the sector. They are:
