2007 Lung Cancer Journalism Awards


Recommended Posts

LONDON, November 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the success of the 2006 Lung Cancer Journalism Awards, The Global Lung Cancer Coalition (GLCC) is excited to launch the 2007 Lung Cancer Journalism Awards during Lung Cancer Awareness Month, 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. Every year more than 1.2 million new cases of lung and bronchial cancer are diagnosed worldwide. Yet despite the severity and widespread nature of the disease, lung cancer is often forgotten and under-recognised. Through the launch of the 2007 Lung Cancer Journalism Awards, we are still aiming to raise the profile of lung cancer in the media, increase worldwide disease awareness and reward the dissemination of intelligent, thought-provoking reporting.

This year, the judges will also be recognising superior clinical review papers that provide a beneficial source for journalists to acquire accurate information on lung cancer. These will be included in a section of the website devoted to the judge's pick of noteworthy research articles.

The award categories for the 2007 Lung Cancer Journalism Awards are:

- Best Medical Article

- Best Consumer Article

- Best Broadcast Report

The winner of each award category will receive a EUR7000 research grant. Like this year, the winning articles will also be announced via an international press release to provide global recognition for their reporting excellence in lung cancer.

Who can enter?

The awards are open to all global media and entries are invited on all issues relating to lung cancer.

When are the boundary dates?

The entry must have been published or broadcast between 1 September 2006 and 1 September 2007.

CLOSING DATE: 28 September 2007

Who will be reviewing the entries?

All entries will be judged by an independent, international panel comprised of a surviving lung cancer patient, a lung cancer specialist, and representatives from the Global Lung Cancer Coalition, the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer and the European Journal of Oncology.

When will the winners be announced?

The winners will be announced during Lung Cancer Awareness Month, November 2007.
