DOW JONES NEWSWIRES WINS ONLINE JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR

Juliane von Reppert-Bismarck wins for her series on the E.U. trade wars

LONDON (April 28, 2006)—Juliane von Reppert-Bismarck, a reporter with Dow Jones Newswires, won the “Online Journalist of the Year” Award last night at a gala ceremony staged here by the U.K.-based World Leadership Forum. The Business Journalist of the Year awards, which were first presented in 1999, are designed to honour the cream of global business and financial writers and broadcasters. This is the second year running that Dow Jones Newswires has won this particular award.

Brussels-based Ms. von Reppert-Bismarck won the “Online Journalist of the Year” award for her series of stories on the E.U. titled ’Trade Wars Create New Advocates/Enemies’. Her colleague, London-based Jackie Range, was also shortlisted in the Online Journalist category for her series of stories which looked at the worldwide boom in the copper trade and its immense impact on Zambia.

Other Dow Jones Newswires reporters to be shortlisted for other awards included London-based Andrea Hotter in the ‘Best Scoop’ award and Italy-based Sabrina Cohen, who together with Wall Street Journal Europe colleague Gabriel Kahn, was shortlisted in the ‘Best Communicator’ award.

“These awards recognise the consistently high quality of our journalism at Dow Jones Newswires and the dogged determination with which our reporters and editors pursue stories throughout the region”, said Gabriella Stern, senior news editor for Dow Jones Newswires in Europe. “Juliane’s stories on the E.U. trade wars brought major political issues to life with her unique angles and insights.”
