Robert Chote, economics correspondent of the Independent on Sunday and Independent, was named Young Financial Journalist of the Year last week. The judges cited the maturity, judgement and technical competence of his writing, vital ingredients of the Independent's 'particularly strong economics team'. The awards were launched in 1970 in memory of Harold Wincott of the Financial Times.

Neal Ascherson, writer and columnist, has won the 1993 Journalism Award of the Anglo-German Foundation for the Study of Industrial Society, for his columns in the Independent on Sunday on German subjects. The prize is given annually to a British and a German journalist for writing about each other's country. This year's German winner was Dr Bernhard Heimrich, London correspondent of the Frankfurter Allgemeine.

The Independent on Sunday is runner-up as National Sunday Newspaper of the Year in the 1993 Media Yearbook Awards, which are determined by a panel of 28 editors drawn from across the periodical press. Last year it won the award, which this year went to the Sunday Times. Judges praised the IoS for its 'classy, challenging writers, its 'forthright questioning of institutions', and the unrivalled quality of the Sunday Review.
