I am pleased to announce that I won the Best New Journalist gong at the Optus IT Journalism Awards on Friday May 15.
With tremendous pride, I can say that I came out on top in a tough field of ten finalists. I have certainly leant a lot about the craft of journalism during my time at CRN, and appreciate the peer and industry recognition.
CRN itself had a successful night, winning Magazine of the Year. Our sister publication iTnews deservedly won Best News Coverage, with my colleague Allie Coyne taking out Best Business Technology Journalist.
A wonderful honour – I certainly didn’t receive a “Best New IT guy” award in my previous career, so this award affirms that I am now doing what I should’ve been doing all along.
