Abstract [en]

There is a wide range of media prizes that are awarded to businesses, business leaders and entrepreneurs. This is easily verified by a quick browse of the latest editions of the business press such as Fortune, Management Today, Financial Times or The Economist. Although the awarding of prizes to organizations and their representatives is a highly visible phenomenon the analysis of such prizes has hitherto been scant. What role do media prizes play in shaping the view of businesses and organizations? The architecture of a prize and its ensuing winners, distils a concentrated formula of what is commendable for business corporations at a given time. Thus such prizes and awards present a unique opportunity to study the production of norms and ideals for corporate management. Following contemporary research on media and organizations we know that the contexts were these prizes are awarded and reported on rely on the interactions of many organizations, where the initiatives and actions of mass media increasingly get tied into the activities and actions of organizations. In a dialectic relationship between media and business, it is clear that corporations are highly involved in shaping not only their brands and their images, but also the norms and ideals for good business. It has even been argued that it is useful to see the contemporary business enterprises as “edited corporations”, where governance is intimately tied to communication processes and where corporations are shaped in part by images and ideals that are circulated around them. Studying prizes thus allows a further investigation of such management ideals; in particular the processes that bring these ideals into being and allow them spread to wide audiences in and around organizations.
