The Award Committee for the annual Prof. Dr. Marijan Hanžeković Competitionfor 2003, consisting of Predrag Bejaković, Pero Jurković, Evan Kraft, Dubravko Mihaljek and Katarina Ott, has made the following decisions.
First prize in the student category was won by Mladen Fruk and Ivan Huljak for their paper Testing out the Sharpe-Lintener model on the Zagreb bourse. The authors will receive a diploma and HRK 10,000.
The papers that were submitted for the regular category were unsatisfactory in terms of quality and quantity and thus this year no prize was awarded in this category.
The paper “National values and national interests in the information age” was disqualified from the competition because it was determined in the reviewing procedure that it almost completely plagiarised the paper“ Knowledge strategies: Balancing ends, ways, and means in the information age” by William R. Fast.
The prize-winning paperhas beenpublished in the journal Financial Theory and Practice, No. 1/04, and the prizes will be awarded to the winners at the beginning of December.
