The European School of Oncology (ESO) is seeking nominations for its annual Best Cancer Reporter Award which honours excellence in cancer journalism. The Award is presented each year to a professional journalist who has made an outstanding contribution to enhancing public understanding about cancer.
The 2013 Best Cancer Reporter Award winner will receive a prize of €10,000. The runner up will receive €5,000. Special Merit Awards will also be given to journalists who the jury believe have excelled in different areas of cancer journalism. In addition, articles from the award-winning journalists will be published in ESO’s Cancer World magazine (www.cancerworld.org).
The Award is open to consumer journalists (staff or freelance) writing for print or online publications who have demonstrated outstanding ability in covering cancer stories. Journalists can nominate themselves or be nominated by a colleague or member of the cancer community.
Journalists who write for medical journals (eg. Nature, etc.), professional audiences (eg. Scrip etc.) or cancer publications (eg. Cancer World, Lancet Oncology, newsletter/magazine published by cancer organisations etc.) are not eligible for this Award.
We are asking for nominations from journalists who think they deserve to win the award as well as people who would like to nominate a journalist whom they have read and should be recognised for their excellence in cancer reporting.
We accept articles in foreign languages but they must be accompanied by an English translation or a one page summary in English.
The articles must have been written between 30th April 2012 and 30th April 2013.
