Enter your work in the 2013 contest!
Since 2004, the Awards for Excellence in Health Care Journalism have recognized the best health reporting in print, broadcast and online media.
Entries can include a wide range of health coverage including public health, consumer health, medical research, the business of health care and health ethics. The contest was created by journalists for journalists and is not influenced or funded by commercial or special-interest groups.
First-place winners earn $500 and a framed certificate. They also receive complimentary lodging for two nights and registration for the annual conference, March 27-30, in Denver. Winners are recognized at the annual awards luncheon and first-place winners are encouraged to appear on panels to discuss their winning work. If there is more than one entrant on the award, it is up to these winners to divide any prize. Lodging will only be covered for one individual in each category.
We are accepting entries for the 2013 awards. The early-bird deadline to enter – which comes with a discounted entry fee – will be Dec. 20. The final deadline will be 5 p.m. CT on Jan. 13.
