For several decades the UCLA Anderson School of Management has presented the Gerald Loeb Awards program, an honor that puts the spotlight on journalists who make significant contributions to the understanding of business, finance and the economy.
And like any strong institution, The Loeb Awards are evolving. This year marks the addition of a new category, Online Commentary and Blogging.
According to an e-mail from Loeb Awards Program Manager Jonathan Daillak, “The new Online Commentary and Blogging category was created to specifically recognize the excellence in analysis and commentary that originates online as it contributes to the mission of the Loeb Awards.”
If you know a business blogger who has wowed you, submit an entry here. Hurry! The deadline is February 1, 2010.
The panel of judges doesn’t have a single slouch on the panel; participants include execs from CNN, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, LA Times, and more. So be sure to only enter a blogger who has had “excellence in analysis and commentary that originates online.”
Entries will be based on news value, originality, reportorial quality, writing quality, analytical value and production value/visual impact.
