We’ve had a number of blog readers win research prizes for white papers over the years. I just saw a new contest sponsored by Sumzero and Value Investing Congress (below, via Greenbackd). Also below are a list of contests that are worth entering (most are offered once a year with various deadlines). Are there any I am missing?
AQR Insight ($100,000 prize)
Whitebox Research ($25,000 prize)
NAAIM Wagner Award ($10,000 prize)
MTA Dow Award ($5,000 prize)
Ira Sohn contest (winner presents at conference)
