Computer Weekly's campaign for an independent review of the £12.4bn NHS IT Programme for IT (NPfIT) has been shortlisted for the publishing industry's "Oscars".
The campaign to increase public scrutiny of the world's largest civilian IT project is in the running for the Editorial Campaign of the Year award at the Periodical Publishers Association ceremony on 9 May.
Computer Weekly editor Brian McKenna said, "That the Computer Weekly editorial team's hard, concentrated work on a campaign to get an independent review of the NPfIT has been recognised in this way is a tribute to the quality and seriousness of our journalism. It is testament to the respect for Computer Weekly in business publishing in the UK."
This is the fifth time in six years that the PPA has shortlisted Computer Weekly for the success of its editorial campaigns. Computer Weekly has won the award four times.
