Computer Weekly has won the editorial campaign of the year at the 27th annual PPA editorial awards, due largely to the investigative journalism of executive editor Tony Collins.
It is the fifth time in seven years that Computer Weekly has won the title.
Computer Weekly’s campaign for an independent parliamentary inquiry into the £12.4bn NHS IT programme drew praise from judges, who said, "Computer Weekly exemplifies outstanding investigative journalism in the face of intransigence."
Computer Weekly’s editor, Brian McKenna, said, "The editorial team's hard, concentrated work on a campaign to get an independent review of the NPfIT continues to be recognised in terms both of publishing accolades and national press coverage, which is a tribute to the quality and seriousness of our journalism.
"In 2004 Computer Weekly received the award for the NHS IT Watch campaign – so this victory is all the more remarkable.”
