PC Pro's Jon Honeyball joins an illustrious shortlist of nominees for the PPA Columnist of the Year

PC Pro's Jon Honeyball has been nominated as Columnist of the Year by the Professional Publishers Association.

Jon, who has written for PC Pro since the first issue in 1994, joins an illustrious shortlist of nominees.

He's nominated alongside The Sunday Times and Esquire critic, AA Gill; Top Gear presenter and writer James May; comedian and Radio Times columnist Sarah Millican; and the recently deceased Sir Patrick Moore from The Sky At Night.

"Jon's unvarnished truth about the IT industry is one of the key reasons why PC Pro remains the UK's biggest selling computing monthly," said editor, Barry Collins. "Almost 20 years after he first appeared in PC Pro, he’s still the voice of British technology."

Jon earned his nomination for three Epilog columns: his showcasing of a British technology firm producing waterproof coatings for smartphones in the April 2012 edition; his demolition of the government's plans to spend billions of pounds on a high-speed rail network instead of fibre broadband in June 2012; and his typically blunt assessment of Windows 8 two months later.

Jon's Epliog columns are only available in PC Pro magazine every month. You can subscribe to PC Pro and get your first three issues for only £1 here.
