Lifehacker has taken out Best Personal Technology Coverage honours at the annual IT Journalism awards. The gala ceremony was held last Friday evening in Sydney, where editor Angus Kidman also won Best Consumer Technology Journalist.
Overall, Angus was nominated in an industry-leading eight categories, including Best Business Technology Journalist and Best Telecommunications Journalist. Also in the running were Lifehacker’s weekend editor Logan Booker (nominated for Best Technical Journalist) and night editor Elly Hart (nominated for Best Reviewer).
Lifehacker was further nominated in the Best Video Category (for Lifehacker Live) and for Best Website. Lifehacker picked up the latter in 2012, and this year that honour went to sister-site Gizmodo. Meanwhile, Kotaku won Best Gaming Coverage for the third-straight year.
As publisher, I’d like to thank Angus for his relentless consumer advocacy and his amazing World of Servers coverage. This week he's in London uncovering fresh IT insights from the Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit in London.
Huge props also to Elly and Logan. And a massive thank you to everyone who reads and comments on Lifehacker.
Allure Media is thrilled that we continue to be recognised as the country's most outstanding technology publisher. Lifehacker, Gizmodo and Kotaku appreciate your support.
