The best article in the Non-Daily Newspaper category was awarded to “Un paisa que creó un unicornio” written by Javier Caparroso and published in the Colombian magazine Dinero, which tells the story of David Vélez, the Colombian entrepreneur behind the creation of Nubank, the most successful Latin American fintech of the moment which operates in several countries in the region.

The 9th Economic Journalism Awards also singled out the work of La Prensa (Panama) and Entrepreneur (Mexico) for their efforts to promote economic and entrepreneurial culture in Latin America.

The newspaper La Prensa, published in Panama City, was honored in the category of Best Daily Newspaper for its extensive coverage of economic issues, including the website martesfinanciero.com. Founded in 1980, and with an ownership structure that limits any shareholding to 1% of the total, the newspaper has matched Panama’s economic growth in recent years with its dedication to economic information and analysis.

The publication Entrepreneur.com, edited in Mexico but distributed throughout the region, won the category of Best Non-Daily Newspaper for its extensive coverage of the innovative, entrepreneurial ecosystem in Latin America. Entrepreneur which has been published for 28 years in Spanish, generates around 4,000 news items on entrepreneurship every year and has more than 25 million visitors per month on its different platforms, in addition to being a dynamic player in Latin American entrepreneurship through its events and activities.

The 9th Journalism Awards jury, in charge of reviewing the entries, is made up of executives from the organizing bodies and journalists who have won the award in previous years.

The awards are sponsored by CAF, the Latin American development bank, and supported by CNN en español, Iberia, Cinco Días and Casa de América.
The awards ceremony of the 9th Ibero-American Economic Journalism Awards is scheduled to take place on February 23rd at Casa de América in Madrid. Cinco Días is the media partner and Iberia is the event’s official airline.
