The Cancer Journalism Award is an annual award that recognises and encourages excellent cancer journalism. The 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.
Is your journalism improving public understanding of cancer?
The Cancer Journalism Award is organized by The European School of Oncology (ESO) to recognize outstanding pieces of journalism published or broadcast that are changing the way we think about cancer.
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:
Policy, services and affordability
Research and science
Prevention and treatment
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:
Europe (including non EU countries)
Eastern Europe (including non EU countries)
Central and Latin America
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.
