About the Award

Jury

A committee of preliminary judges, consisting of business, financial and economic journalists and faculty members of UCLA Anderson School of Management, is assigned to each competition category. These committees review all entries and select finalists in their category. Judges may change the category in which an entry is submitted if, in their opinion, it more appropriately belongs in a different category.

A diverse and distinguished panel of final judges, representing major print, broadcast and online outlets, meets and selects the winner in each category from among finalists submitted by the preliminary judges. The final judges will also review the nominees for the Lifetime Achievement Award and Lawrence Minard Editor Award, and choose a recipient for each award. The dean of UCLA Anderson School of Management chairs the panel.
