Every year Citi Australia & New Zealand hosts the Citi Journalism Awards for Excellence. The prize is a prestigious 10-day study tour with journalists from around the world at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in New York.
Launched in Australia in 1993, the Awards now attract some 60 entries each year in five award categories - The Economy, Financial Markets, General Business, Broadcast Media and Personal Finance. Each entry is scrutinised by an independent panel of judges comprising business, regulatory, economic and academic leaders.
Citi Australia is proud to announce James Chessell and Ben Holgate from The Australian Financial Review as joint winners of the 2013 Citi Australia & New Zealand Journalism Awards for Excellence for their feature article 'Ten ways to kill a network' published in December 2012.
This year there were 59 entries representing 20 publications, and Citi extends its congratulations to all entrants and winners.
One of the key attributes of the Awards is the integrity and independence of the judging panel. It consists of leaders business, the public sector, academia, as well as the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in New York. Citi management does not judge the entries. The criteria used for judging includes analysis and understanding of the issue; use of research and data; relevance to the audience and the quality of writing and communication (including accuracy).
