Gerald Loeb Awards Announces Changes To Categories And Schedule

In a Move Toward Platform Neutrality, the Competition is Reorganized

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UCLA Anderson School of Management and the G. and R. Loeb Foundation mark their forty year partnership with significant changes to the 14 competition categories for the 2013 Gerald Loeb Awards. A longer submission period was also announced today.

To align The Gerald Loeb Awards more closely with changes throughout the field of journalism, Loeb Awards categories and submissions guidelines have been restructured. The new structure is an effort to lift platform restrictions per category and more accurately reflect journalism as it is currently practiced.

"The Loeb Awards are significant to the industry and to the public at large because they celebrate the best in business journalism," says Judy Olian, dean of UCLA Anderson School of Management and chair of the G. and R. Loeb Foundation.  "As platforms and dissemination channels change, so too should The Loeb Awards.  It is time for the Loebs to move toward platform neutrality, and to continue to highlight the best current expression of excellence in business journalism."

Beginning this year all categories will be classified into either Platform Neutral or Platform Specific groups. Platform Neutral categories will accept submissions in all forms of journalism and in any combination of forms – traditional print, broadcast (video and audio), digital (online and interactive), still photography, graphics/data visualization, and social media.

Platform Specific category submissions will be limited to a single form of journalism as designated by the category – newspapers, magazines, broadcast, etc. For both Platform Neutral and Platform Specific categories, a single submission is limited to a maximum of five (5) news items: individual article(s), broadcast segments (television, radio, or online video), visual elements, blogs, photos, etc. For a full list of eligibility and rules, please visit http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/x45708.xml.

Three new Loeb Award categories also were created for the 2013 competition: Images/Visuals, International, and Investigative. Additionally, the Large Newspapers category is now open to submissions from outlets with a circulation of 200,000 or more; and the circulation criteria for the Small & Medium Newspapers category will be 199,999 or less. For a full list of all fourteen competition categories and their descriptions, please visit http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/x45707.xml.

To give submitters time to learn the new system, this year's call-for-entries will be extended by nearly two weeks. Submissions will be accepted from December 19, 2012, through February 1, 2013 at www.loeb.anderson.ucla.edu.

Any writer, commercial publication, media outlet or broadcast program may enter a submission on a subject related to business, finance and/or economics. Individual authors may submit a maximum of two (2) submissions per category and authors with joint bylines may submit a maximum of three (3) submissions per category. Media outlets are limited to two (2) submissions per category. The same submission may only be entered a maximum of two (2) times, once in a Platform Neutral category and once in a Platform Specific category. Consideration is limited to submissions that were published or broadcast in the United States during calendar year 2012.
