MT isn't one to blow its own trumpet, but it's pretty pleased with itself: last night, it won a veritable cabinet of gongs (alright, two) at the Towers Watson Media Awards.

Not only did we win publication of the year - which was voted on by the journalists who entered the awards, but editor Matthew Gwyther won features writer of the year.

Will Aitken, one of the judges and a senior DC pensions consultant at Towers Watson, said he was 'struck by the quality of the entries and the level of thought, research and skills that goes into producing such high-quality journalism'.

Want to read aforementioned 'high-quality journalism'? Here are Gwyther's winning pieces: 1. his profile of the Ocado founders, 2. his day learning to code (spoiler: it wasn't a success), 3. his interview with easyJet chief executive Carolyn McCall.
