In the run-up to National Freelancers Day on June 8, we think it’s about time you got to know the finalists for the 2017 Freelancer of the Year Awards.

There are 15 finalists in total: ten for the Inspire category, and five for the under-24 Aspire category. And the IPSE team had the chance to meet all of them at the judging for this year’s awards. So we took the chance to find out a bit about each of them and interview them all for our podcast.

We got some fascinating results – including some invaluable insights into the freelancing industry in general. Click on the links below and take a listen!
