UCLA Anderson School of Management and the G. and R. Loeb Foundation invite individual journalists and all print, online and broadcast media outlets to submit entries in 12 competition categories for the 2023 Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism.
Nominations will also be accepted for two career achievement honors, the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Lawrence Minard Editor Award.
The Gerald Loeb Awards are the most prestigious honor in business journalism in the United States.
This year’s call for entries marks the beginning of the Loeb Foundation’s 50th year with UCLA Anderson. Gerald Loeb designated UCLA Anderson the steward of the Loeb Foundation and Awards in 1973. UCLA Anderson Dean Antonio Bernardo chairs the awards’ final judging committee of leading journalists, news executives and academics.
Loeb was a founding partner of E.F. Hutton and established the awards in 1957. He deeply appreciated the significant role journalists fulfill in society and created the awards to encourage and support reporting on business and finance that will inform and protect both the private investor and the public. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates primarily on competition entry fees, banquet ticket sales, sponsorships and private support.
