The European School of Oncology is looking for outstanding pieces of journalism published or broadcast between January 2020 and end of March 2021 that are changing the way we think about cancer.
The Cancer Journalism Award encourages, celebrates and rewards journalists who deliver insights into the personal and social effects of the disease, and the impact of policy, practice and advocacy.
We are inviting journalists to submit one or more items of their work – whether in print, online, on radio, video or television – into the following three categories:
Further details about each category can be found here.
In all categories, we are looking for articles/programmes that move beyond documenting experience, science, policy and practice. We want to reward work that asks difficult questions, increases awareness and prompts change. We are particularly looking for investigative stories. We expect that patient experience and perspectives will be reflected in all submissions, whatever the category.
The Award is open to journalists working in the following regions:
A prize of €1500 is available for the winner in each category. The journalist judged the overall winner will receive an additional €500 bringing their prize total to €2000.
