Best Cancer Reporter Award 2013

The Best Cancer Reporter Award is organised by the European School of Oncology (ESO) with the aim of encouraging intelligent and critical coverage of cancer journalism. ESO has been running the award since 2006 and as in previous years we are contacting all EUSJA representatives to ask for help in promoting the award to as many science journalists as possible.

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. There will be one first prize of 10,000 euro and a runner up prize of 5,000 euro. 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

We have put together this small press release (attached) detailing the award. Is there any way that you could send this out to your members? The closing date for the award is 30th April 2013, so in the meantime if you have any other ideas on how we could promote this to science/cancer journalists we would greatly appreciate all your help and ideas. Further information regarding the award can be found on our website:
