The New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants is reminding journalists to send entries for its annual Excellence in Financial Journalism Award.

This competition recognizes reporters from the national and local media who contribute to a better understanding of business topics. The Society presents awards in print, radio, television, wire service and electric media published or broadcast between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2006.

Deadline for entries is Feb. 1, 2007. An application is available from the Society’s website, http://www.nysscpa.org/ in the Press Room.

Entries are judged by members of the Society and the New York Financial Writers Association. An awards luncheon is held at the Yale Club in early May.

Any questions about your application may be directed to Lois Whitehead, NYSSCPA public relations manager at 212-719-8405 or lwhitehead@nysscpa.org
