Jonathan Swift of Insurance Post named BIBA’s Journalist of the Year Award 2023

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has named Jonathan Swift of Insurance Post as the 2023 BIBA Journalist of the Year at its annual Journalist & Media Awards.

About the Awards

BIBA is committed to promoting the work that brokers do in helping businesses and individuals access the insurance protection they need. That is why we showcase the work that journalists, broadcasters, publications and other influential media providers do to increase the understanding of insurance.

It is now 40 years since BIBA held its first journalist awards and the breadth and depth of material available to reporters and creators is bigger than ever. Those in the media, across all channels, are influencers and we want to work with them to highlight the good that insurance can do for businesses, individuals and the economy.
