Computer Weekly was last week crowned the UK's Campaigning Magazine of the Year for an unprecedented second consecutive year in the industry's annual awards for editorial excellence.

Judges of the 2002 awards , run by the Periodical Publishers Association (PPA) described as "brave" and "stunning" our successful campaign to delay the introduction of Microsoft's controversial new software licensing regime.

The campaign, co-ordinated with UK user groups and individual users, resulted in Microsoft postponing the introduction of the new rules from October 2001 to July 2002, giving users breathing space to decide how to respond.

Last year Computer Weekly won the same award for its campaign to show that computer failure, rather than pilot error, could have caused the Chinook helicopter crash on the Mull of Kintyre in 1994, in which 29 people were killed, including top Northern Ireland intelligence officers.

Over the past three years Computer Weekly has been more successful than any other magazine at the PPA awards, winning four trophies, including Business Magazine of the Year in 2000.

The editorial campaign award is hotly-contested as it is open to all the UK's business and consumer magazines. This is the first time that it has been won by the same magazine two years in succession.
