    Hi David
    I won the other two PIRA awards in 1987. I don’t suppose you have any info from the awards. All I can find is a mention in the computer magazine that promoted the awards

  2. Sorry to reply so late Glenn, blame the Junk folder! That’s interesting – I won one award, but was told it covered two magazines I entered! I have no idea what other mentions might have been made. I won ‘Best Newspaper or Magazine’ according to the certificate, two entirely different things in my view but that’s how they did it.
