Please read the steps below carefully before applying:
You can submit up to three pieces of published work. For each piece of work you must select the relevant category:
- Research, science and treatment
We are looking for work that seriously assesses the value of new developments or existing practices, rather than simply describing them
- Patient and carer experience
Rather than simple human interest stories, we are looking for work that throws light on the attitudes and behaviours of clinicians, services and society
- Policy, services and affordability
We want accessible pieces that raise serious questions about cancer services and discuss possible answers
We are looking for pieces focusing on the causes of cancer and actions to avoid risk and increase protection. Work focusing on screening and early detection are also welcome.
Written articles should be saved in one of the following formats: a word doc, pdf or jpeg. If your article is available online you can insert a direct link on the application form instead of uploading a document.
Work published on television, film, video and radio/podcast should be made available by providing a link to a website such as YouTube or Vimeo.
If your work is not in English you will be required to prepare a translation of the piece into English. You will need to upload this separately on to our system when you upload your piece of work. Entrants may use whichever method of translation they like, including Google Translate. The judges want to encourage entries from as many countries as possible, so will be sympathetic to translation difficulties. However, the translation must be of sufficient quality to allow a proper judgement of the work to be made.
Please prepare and save a statement (no more than 150 words) as to why your piece of work should receive a Cancer Journalism Award. This can be submitted either as a word doc. or pdf. You will be requested to upload a separate statement for each piece of work you submit.
Please download and complete the attached Copyright Form. You will be requested to upload a completed version of this form for each piece of work that you submit. We request this form because we would like to reprint winning articles in our print and online magazine Cancer World. If your piece of work is a radio/television broadcast you are not required to give us copyright but if you win the Award one of the Cancer World journalists will cover your winning piece as an article in Cancer World.
Once all these documents are ready you can start the application process. Please click on the ‘Apply Now’ button on the webpage and complete the personal details form first. You will then be required to upload your work and documents.
