Despite its extensive impact around the world, the need for education on the correct facts about epilepsy is still great. To encourage journalists to raise awareness of epilepsy and to help break down these barriers, IBE and UCB Pharma are pleased to launch the Excellence in Epilepsy Journalism Award. The award will recognise journalists who produce stimulating, informed and compelling news and feature stories on epilepsy.
The international award is open to consumer, health and medical journalists from around the world writing for print, broadcast or online media and will celebrate journalism that challenges stereotypes. Freelance journalists are also eligible to enter. Reports and articles submitted for consideration must have been published or broadcast between 30th June 2009 and 29th October 2010.
Prizes will be presented in three separate categories:
Entries accompanied by a completed entry form will be accepted until 29th October 2010.
