2017 Citi Journalism Awards for Excellence.

2017 marks the 35th anniversary of the Citi Journalism Awards for Excellence, a global program to recognise the very best of business journalism around the world.

Citi Australia once again invites journalists with Australian and New Zealand media outlets, or those based here but working for offshore media outlets to submit entries for the 2017 Citi Journalism Awards for Excellence.

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.

One of the key attributes of the Awards is the integrity and independence of the judging panel, which is designed to represent a wide range of Australian and New Zealand business, academic and economic sectors, as well as the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in New York.

Entries are open from Tuesday, 3 January 2017 and will close 5pm Monday, 6 February 2017. Please note, entries received after closing cannot be considered. Stories must have been published or broadcast during 2016.
