Award-winning journalism

John Riley, managing editor (1982-2008), says, " We were the first IT paper to have a weekly Internet page (from 1994) and every aspect of the paper was first class, winning many awards and accolades even down to our Puzzler column which gained an entry in the Guinness Book of Records. We were proud of winning several prestigious UK Periodical Publishers’ Association (PPA) awards for Campaign of the Year and Best Business Journal."


The first issue of Computer Weekly magazine in 1966 was the start of an era in the UK IT industry – the first ever weekly technology publication. When the final print edition of the magazine comes out on 19 April, it will be the start of another exciting era, where Computer Weekly goes fully digital, reflecting the dramatic changes that the internet has brought to not just our business but those of all our readers.
