Computer Weekly is the UK's top business weekly - and that's official. Last week Computer Weekly won the PPA Business and Professional Magazine of the Year award. And executive editor Tony Collins took the coveted Business and Professional Writer of the Year award.

Presenting the awards at London's Grosvenor House, judges said, "If a gauge of a magazine's effectiveness is the amount of national coverage its articles generate then Computer Weekly is a clear champion."

They also praised the "bold" redesign and the high regard in which its journalists are held in the market.

Judges cited Collins' investigation into the 1994 Chinook helicopter crash, which continues to make waves.

"This rare but effective investigative reporter is a terrific journalist of the traditional school," they said. "He delivers scoops regularly and imbues them with passion."

Editor Karl Schneider said, "I am proud, not just for the team, but for the IT profession the paper serves. IT is now at the heart of business. We set out to produce a business paper not just with sectoral authority but with national authority.

"These awards show we've achieved that," Schneider said.
