'The entry blew my mind'.

Accountancy Age award winners include HM Prison Service, Nick Montague and E&Y

The impressive list of Accountancy Age Awards this year includes a most unusual winner – HM Prison Service – which took the number one spot in the Annual Report and Accounts category.

All judges were highly impressed with the submission. One described it as ‘blowing his mind’.

They said the numbers were well presented and that they were clearly explained in the text of the report. There was also clear information about the prison service’s activities, and the statutory background which it works in.

The judges paid tribute to the clarity of the report’s presentation, its colour and dynamism.

Similar qualities stood out among other award winners, such as Amanda Caine, winner of the Public Services Achievement award. She was credited with turning around the crisis-hit finance function of FARM-Africa, a charity that works with communities in Africa.

The finance team of the Eden Project, now Cornwall’s biggest tourist attraction, won the Finance Team of the Year Award.
