Closing date for 2017 entries is Monday 28 August.
CSSANZ offers an annual Media Prize for the best media segment (published article, television or radio commentary, or multimedia format) judged by the Media and Public Relations Committee of the CSSANZ to provide the best information to patients.
The award aims to recognise the important role the media can play in raising public awareness of the spectrum of colorectal disease, and the impact these conditions can have on patients.
The winner is Lorelei Mason, One News Health Report here in NZ for her article “‘Hundreds of lives will be saved’ after bowel cancer screening given green light”. The judges felt that the article was well-researched and informative. It highlighted a major health development in our region and specialty, and imparted the information in a clear and professional way. A link to the award-winning article can be found here.
