It’s time for nominations in the competition world. If you are in a nominating mood, here are some possibilities:

  • W@Competition– a new organization for women competition law professionals– is currently accepting nominations for its first “30 in their 30’s” list (a sensitive listing as it may require asking about age…). You can nominate exceptional women in four categories: private practice, in-house, enforcement and economics. To know more about the organization and to nominate your candidates click here. Chillin’Competition will be supporting the initiative.
  • Who is Who and Global Competition Review are seeking nominations to identify “future leaders” in the field of competition law. You can nominate anyone under 45 to the “partner” or “non-partner” categories. The deadline is tomorrow. For more info, click here. If you have been invited lately to an open bar and/or a conference by anyone meeting this criteria, now it’s pay back time :p
  • Today is also the last day to nominate articles for Concurrences’ Antitrust Writing Awards. You can nominate your favorite articles here. For Pablo and myself this is sort-of-like the Nobel Literature Prize for Roth or Murakami (well, with some nuances on all sides…); we are always shortlisted but never win 😉  This time we have a joint nomination for our article On the notion of restriction of competition (in the Academic/General Antitrust category), and Pablo has another for his article on Appreciability and de minimis in Article 102 (in the Business/Dominance category).
