The Citi Journalism Awards for Excellence aims to encourage and recognize excellence in business and finance journalism. Print, online and broadcast journalists from Australian and New Zealand media outlets are invited to submit entries in five categories; general business, the economy, personal finance, financial markets and broadcast business media. Articles and programs must have been published or aired during 2013.
The overall winner, chosen from the five category winners will participate in a 12-day study tour hosted by Columbia University in New York.
The Citi Journalism Awards for Excellence is a global program that recognizes meritorious business reporting around the world. The Awards were introduced into Australia over 30 years ago and are the only dedicated award for business and finance journalists in Australia and New Zealand.
Many previous winners consider the study tour to be a career enhancing experience, having participated in sessions with leading Columbia University faculty members, engaged in discussions with senior academics and policy-makers, and visited key financial institutions and US Government Departments such as the New York Stock Exchange, the World Bank, the IMF, Bloomberg and the Federal Reserve Bank.
One of the key attributes of the Awards is the integrity and independence of the judging panel, which includes representatives from the business and economic sectors, as well as the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in New York.
