FCW earns top computer press honor
Federal Computer Week was named Best Trade Newspaper last week by the Computer Press Association in its 11th annual Computer Press Awards. More than 100 finalists contended for awards in some 26 categories that included books, magazines, and multimedia and on-line categories.
The Best Trade Newspaper award, one of three Best Newspaper categories, is presented to a publication with a circulation of less than 100,000.
Computer Reseller News won as Best Broad Interest Newspaper with a circulation of 100,000 or more.
Computerworld won Best Technical Trade Magazine with a circulation of 200,000 or fewer.
In presenting the award, CPA said FCW "raises the appropriate issues of concern to federal policy makers. It is a weekly newspaper that one looks forward to receiving each week."
CPA announced the awards at a dinner in New York last week.
"It's always gratifying when your peers recognize your work," said FCW editor in chief Anne A. Armstrong. "We are constantly aware, however, that our readers remain our ultimate judges, and they get a chance to vote every week. It keeps us on our toes."
FCW has twice been a finalist in CPA's Best News Story category and last year was selected as best government publication by Folio: magazine.
The paper has also won Best News Story in the competition held by the American Society of Business Press Editors.
