Concurrences Antitrust Writing Awards 2012

Josh Wright —  15 February 2012

The Institute for Competition Law and GW Law have put together the Antitrust Writing Awards.  You can vote on academic or business articles here.  I’m very pleased to report that one of my articles — Does Antitrust Enforcement in High-Tech Markets Benefit Consumers?  Stock Price Evidence from FTC v. Intel (Review of Industrial Organization) — was nominated in the “economics” category.

Here is a description:

The Antitrust Writing Awards’ goal is to promote antitrust scholarship and competition advocacy by recognizing and awarding the best articles published in the antitrust law and law & economics fields in the last 12 months. The Awards feature two different categories of articles: Academic and Business. The Academic Articles category comprises articles published in academic journals, whereas the Business Articles category features articles published in professional magazines or newsletters. The articles are selected by a jury and by readers. The jury consist of a Board, an Academic and a Business Steering Committees composed of the leading academics and counsels. Readers contribute to the selection process by voting for articles. The Institute of Competition Law – the publisher of the Journal Concurrences and the e-Competitions Bulletin – and George Washington University Law School, are organizing these first of their kind Antitrust Writing Awards with the support of partners. The Awards ceremony will take place in Washington DC on 27 March 2012.

The Board ultimately selects the winners with input from reader votes and steering committees (I am a member of the academic steering committee).

Lots of interesting articles nominated; go check them out and vote.
