Award for rural blog

16/07/2008

Rural Network  editor Pip Stevenson has won the Institute of Agricultural and Horticultural Science’s Sir Arthur Ward Award for science communication in recognition of her work on Dig ‘n’ Stir  blog.

NZIAHS president John Lancashire praised Stevenson’s efforts in covering science in the new, online format of the blog. He described it as “communication beyond the call of duty to the wider audience.”

Rural Network and Dig ‘n’ Stir are on my daily-read list and I’m delighted that Pip’s work has been recognised.

I’m also pleased that this award recognises the growing importance of blogs in communications and the media.
