Loeb Awards now accepting entries
by Chris Roush
The Gerald Loeb Awards are the most prestigious honor in business journalism and were established in 1957 by the late Gerald Loeb , founding partner of E.F. Hutton , to recognize writers, editors and producers who make significant contributions to the understanding of business, finance and the economy for both the private investor and the general public.
In marking the award’s 40-year partnership with UCLA Anderson, a transition toward platform neutrality has been implemented and competition categories have been restructured to reflect the most current forms of journalism. All categories are now classified into either Platform Neutral or Platform Specific groups.
Nominations will continue to be accepted for (1) the Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes exceptional career contributions in the field of business, financial and economic news; and (2) the Lawrence Minard Editor Award, which recognizes career contributions in business journalism editing.
Detailed descriptions of the Platform Neutral and Platform Specific groups and categories for the 2013 competition can be found online.
Submissions for the competition categories and career achievement awards nominations are accepted online only at www.loeb.anderson.ucla.edu.
