And the Winner Is…

4592.jpg… Kerstin Kohlenberg.

This week, I had the honor of being one of three nominees of the “Georg von Holtzbrinck Preis für Wirtschaftspublizistik”, a prestigious price for business journalism in Germany. I was nominated for a story in SonntagsBlick Magazin on a tent city in Ontario, California, and an interview in Bilanz and brand eins with former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski.

Ms. Kohlenberg won for two well-researched, exquisitely written stories on the current economic crisis for German weekly Die Zeit. The price was awarded at a ceremony in Frankfurt.

Had I won, I had thanked the two photographers with whom I did those stories – Charly Kurz and Stefan Falke.
