2021 FRANCO NICOSIA BEST COMPETITIVE PAPER AWARD

AALTO UNIVERSITY DOCTORAL STUDENT WINS
THE FRANCO NICOSIA BEST COMPETITIVE PAPER AWARD

The Association for Consumer Research (ACR) announced Hunter Jones as the recipient of the Franco Nicosia Award for the Best Competitive Paper at its annual conference in October. The paper, “The Silver Lining to the Mushroom Cloud: A Netnographic Analysis of Consumers Enjoying Systemic and Existential Risks,” was selected from a pool of 239 papers presented at the conference (from a submission pool of 444). The winners were selected by the conference chairs Tonya Bradford, Anat Keinan, and Matt Thomson based on evaluations from multiple reviewers who considered this to be exceptional work with the possibility to make a meaningful influence on the discipline.

“ACR is an extremely competitive conference and the Nicosia Award goes to a paper that several reviewers believe has the potential for significant scholarly impact,” said Rajiv Vaidyanathan, Executive Director of ACR and Professor of Marketing at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

The Franco Nicosia Award was established in 1998 in honor of Professor Franco Nicosia of the University of California, Berkeley. It is funded by the Sheth Foundation and is presented to the author/s of the best competitive paper presented at the ACR conference.
