2013 Call For Article Contest

How would you like to be considered a Fiduciary Thought Leader?

Get fame! Get fortune! Get published!

Here’s your chance to show your peers you know a thing or two about matters pertaining to the fiduciary. By entering your 700-1,200 word article before Midnight (EST) May 15, 2013, you become eligible to win the Grand Prize of a $100 gift card. But you can win even without winning the Grand Prize. Up to five finalists will be selected – one from each of our categories (Compliance, Conflicts-of-Interest, Due Diligence, Education and Fees). Each finalist will see their article published in That’s when the fun really starts. Once the finalists have been published, readers will have four weeks to vote for their favorite article. At the end of the four week voting period, the votes will be tallied and the Grand Prize winner will be declared “2013 Thought Leader of the Year.”  If the Grand Prize winner fails to accept the $100 gift card, the first runner-up will be offered the card. If the first runner-up fails to accept the $100 gift card, then the second runner-up will be offered the card. If the second runner-up fails to accept the $100 gift card, then the third runner-up will be offered the card. If the third runner-up fails to accept the $100 gift card, then the fourth runner-up will be offered the card. If the fourth runner-up fails to accept the $100 gift card, then a random drawing of all the remaining entrants will be made until one accepts the $100 gift card.
