Cogora has won two awards at the British Society of Magazine Editors’ (BSME) Talent Awards.

BSME Talent Awards

Pulse Senior Reporter Eliza Parr won B2B Writer of the Year, against some incredibly stiff competition, as well Best Use of Data Journalism, alongside fellow Pulse Senior reporter Anna Colivicchi.

Their joint nomination at the BSME Talent Awards was for an investigation into the Government’s GP recruitment plans.

The judges wrote about Eliza: ‘In her first role in journalism, Eliza’s skilful reporting and command of data-driven storytelling resonated with her audience and caught the eye of the judges. A star in the making, she shone through in a hotly contested category.’

They wrote about Anna and Eliza’s entry: ‘Anna and Eliza took a challenge faced by millions of Britons every day – getting a GP appointment – and dug into the numbers to explain why the UK public in underserved in a thorough and compelling way. Their work successfully brought to life a piece of work that could help to shape government policy.’
