LONDON, May 26 /PRNewswire/ --

-- The Global Lung Cancer Coalition (GLCC) is Excited to Launch the Tempus Journalism Awards, a Global Initiative to Recognise Excellence in Lung Cancer Reporting

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in both men and women and every year more than 1.2 million new cases of lung and bronchial cancer are diagnosed worldwide. Sufferers of lung cancer are often stigmatised for their disease which is seen as a 'smoker's' disease. Through the Tempus Journalism Award, we aim to raise the profile of lung cancer in the media, increase worldwide disease awareness and help remove the stigma associated with the disease.

The core award categories are:

- Best Medical Article

- Best Consumer Article

- Best Broadcast Piece

The winner of each award category will receive a EUR7000 research grant to further reporting of the disease, as well as receiving the chance to speak during Lung Cancer Awareness Month during November and/or at an international lung cancer congress.

The awards are open to all global media and entries are invited on all issues relating to lung cancer. The entry must have been published or broadcast between 1 September 2005 and 1 September 2006. All entries will be judged by an independent international panel comprising; the Global Lung Cancer Coalition, leading editors and a lung cancer specialist. The winners will be announced during Lung Cancer Awareness Month, November 2006.

CLOSING DATE: 28 September 2006
