2016

Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) “Best in Business” award in commentary category for my columns at TheStreet.

From the judges: Susan Antilla’s columns on underhanded Wall Street practices were a reality check about the institutional forces working against the interests of small investors at a time when more and more “regular” people navigate their own retirement planning. In another column, she explained how gains in workplace gender equity can be illusory, and how a double standard in the behavior of men and women remains.

New York Press Club Journalism Award for consumer reporting for my stories “Vanguard and Cybercriminals.”

Connecticut Press Club First place in business journalism for my stories about problems with customer account security at Vanguard Group.

Society of the Silurians Excellence in Journalism award for my columns at TheStreet.

From the judges: “Watch what Wall Street does, not what it says,” Antilla enjoins her readers and, heeding her own counsel, she does just that in a string of columns, built on solid reporting and trenchant analysis, that expose the duplicitous practices unscrupulous stockbrokers employ to intentionally mislead and, ultimately, fleece their clients.

 

New York State Society of CPAs Excellence in Journalism Award for commentary for my columns at TheStreet.

From the judges: Susan Antilla, TheStreet, used her solid reporting and analytical skills in, “Wall Street Has a Unique Way of ‘Protecting’ Small Investors,” as she exposed Wall Street for its efforts to avoid change that could possibly improve access to stockbroker records. Throughout her research, she also called out the securities industry for its empty arguments that tougher regulations would force brokers to drop smaller investors as customers.

Society of the Silurians 2015 “Excellence in Journalism” award  in the “online commentary” category for my columns at TheStreet.com.

2014

Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) “Best in Business” award for online commentary written in 2013.
Judges’ comments on Antilla columns for Bloomberg View:

“Terrific topics. Tough, engaging, enlightening, head-snapping. Well-reasoned arguments. Writes with authority and insight in a simple, declarative style that doesn’t wander. No navel-gazing. Sophisticated humor used lightly in a way that advances the argument. Not humor for humor’s sake.”

Society of the Silurians 2014 Excellence in Journalism Award for business and financial reporting.

2014 Connecticut Press Club first prize in “Personal Opinion” category for 2013 Bloomberg View columns.

Connecticut Press Club second prize, Feature Writing category, for New York Times article “Investors’ Story Left Out of Wall St. ‘Wolf’ Movie”

2013

SABEW “Best in Business” award for online commentary written in 2012 .
Judges’ comments on Antilla columns for Bloomberg View:

“Susan Antilla’s sharp-edged commentaries give no quarter to those who mistreat investors or to the meek regulators who let offenders off easy. Her writing is crisp and eviscerating — two powerful traits when it comes to sharing opinions. Antilla demonstrates a shrewd understanding of the financial industry and its unsteady interaction with the federal government.”
