2016 Citi Journalism Awards for Excellence.

The Citi Journalism Awards for Excellence is a global program that recognises meritorious business and finance reporting around the world. Launched in Australia and New Zealand in 1993, award recipients have included many acclaimed business journalists.

Citi welcomes submissions from journalists with Australian and New Zealand media outlets, or from those based here but working for offshore media outlets. Entries are invited across four categories: broadcast, general business, markets and investment, and the economy. The overall winner, chosen from the four category winners, will participate in a 10-day study tour hosted by Columbia University in New York.

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, journalists, bankers and policy-makers, and visited institutions such as the New York Stock Exchange, the World Bank, the IMF, and the Federal Reserve Bank.

Entries are open from Monday 4 January 2016 and will close 5pm Monday, 8 February 2016. Please note, entries after closing cannot be considered. Stories must have been published or broadcast during 2015.
