Mortgage Solutions deputy editor Samantha Partington won Mortgage Journalist of the Year – B2B last night at the Headlinemoney Awards, with three wins in total by AE3 Media, the magazine's publisher.

Partington (pictured centre) picked up the trophy at the celebrated financial journalism industry awards held at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London last night presented by mortgage category sponsors Nationwide.

This is the third year in a row the Mortgage Solutions team has snapped up the B2B award after previous features editor Hannah Uttley won last year and Partington’s first ever win in 2015.

The judges were impressed by the quality of Partington’s contact book and said she ‘owned’ the stories she submitted for the competition. One judge said: “Her story on how one big name high street lender was writing to clients six months before their mortgage term finished in a bid to try and cut out brokers was really good. Samantha drives issues forward and is very good at explaining things clearly.”

Other AE3 Media award winners on the consumer division include Your Money editor Joanna Faith (pictured left) who claimed the award in the newly-created category of Savings Journalist of the Year. Paloma Kubiak (pictured right) on the same team who also won Household Money Journalist of the Year. Both swept aside other nominees from a raft of national papers to seal their wins.

Faith’s article on children’s savings was singled out by the judges. One judge said: “It was well researched, comprehensive and just a really good read. Joanna’s submissions fit the brief perfectly.” Faith was praised for providing essential guidance for her readers who were struggling to get a return on their money in the current bleak savings climate.

Kubiak was praised for her piece on car insurance. Described as ‘brilliant and original’ she was commended for unearthing interesting findings. Kubiak was congratulated on her research skills, ‘which really stood out in her piece on estate agents’, according to one judge.

The Headlinemoney Awards are the annual benchmark of excellence in financial journalism.
