AMA Entrepreneurial Marketing SIG seeks nominations for The 2010 Gerald E. Hills Best Paper Award

Gerald (Gerry) E. Hills is widely recognized for his research and expertise in entrepreneurial marketing, especially for his work on opportunity recognition. In addition, Gerry initiated and continues to organize a symposium on entrepreneurial marketing (recognized as the Marketing and Entrepreneurship Research Interface Symposium) since the eighties. In fact, Gerry was one of the AMA leaders who initiated the Special Interest Group concept. The Entrepreneurial Marketing SIG is pleased to present a best paper award in recognition of Gerry’s lifetime contributions to the field.

Award Criteria: The Gerald E. Hills Award Best Paper on Entrepreneurial Marketing award will be presented annually (usually during the Summer AMA) to the author(s) of the “best paper” who have made a significant impact on entrepreneurial marketing research. The domain of nominated articles would be papers published in the previous 10 years in any refereed publication, as long as the article significantly influenced the direction of the entrepreneurial marketing literature. The inaugural Hills award was presented during the Summer AMA in Chicago last summer to Prof. Saras Sarasvathy (University of Virginia) for her article, “Causation and Effectuation: Toward a Theoretical Shift from Economic Inevitability to Entrepreneurial Contingency,” published in the Academy of Management Review, 2001, (2), 243-263.

Nomination Deadline: Please send your nomination and statement of endorsement (1 page max) to Can Uslay (Hills Award Committee Chair; AMA EMSIG Vice-Chair for Research) by June 1. Self nominations (for up to two articles) are also acceptable. E-mail:

Glenn Omura, EMSIG Chair
