SCCE Announces Annual Journalism Award

(From a January 10th email)

SCCE has established a new annual journalism award. The award will recognize a journalist who shows insight into the compliance and ethics field, and who promotes public and governmental recognition of the field and/or the value of compliance and ethics programs. The award will be given to a specific journalist or team of journalists.

Submissions may include printed or broadcast materials. SCCE prefers to have permission to reprint or reproduce the material on its Web site. The award recognizes contributions to the compliance and ethics field made at any time in the past; it is not limited to work published in any given year.

Submitted works must have a major focus on corporate compliance and ethics programs and/or compliance and ethics professionals—they should not only be about corporate crime, corporate governance, enterprise risk management, corporate social responsibility, or similar areas. Works sponsored by or focused on the products or services of any one service provider, such as a helpline service, software provider, or online training provider, are not eligible. Works appearing in publications intended solely for the compliance and ethics field (i.e., the trade press) are not eligible, unless the work has had a public impact. Blogs, Web sites, and books will not be considered.

Nominations may be submitted by anyone, including self-nominations. The nomination must include a copy of any material which forms the basis of the nomination and background information on the nominee. Selection decisions will be made by the SCCE. All determinations are final.

All nominations may be e-mailed to Kathy Aro:

Deadlines for submissions:
All nominations must be received by Friday, January 26, 2007.

The journalism award will be presented at the SCCE’s annual awards dinner in Chicago, IL, on Sunday, April 22, 2007, from 6–9 pm.
