In their citation the judges praised Tom, who works for The Daily Telegraph, for producing ‘a stunning portfolio beautifully written covering diverse subjects spanning print and digital’. You can see Tom receiving his award at an event on 22 March 2016 in a video here.

Tom, who read History and Politics, beat a Balliol contemporary, Stephen Bush (History, 2008) of The New Statesman, who received a commendation in the same category, for producing ‘a huge scoop worthy of any publication’.
