Call for Nominations: Endocrine Society’s Award for Excellence in Science and Medical Journalism

Washington, DC November 14, 2019
The Endocrine Society is calling for nominations for the 13th annual Award for Excellence in Science and Medical Journalism. The award recognizes outstanding reporting that enhances public understanding of health issues pertaining to the field of endocrinology. 

Endocrinologists are physicians and scientists who untangle complex symptoms to diagnose, treat, research, or cure hormone-related conditions. These conditions include diabetes, thyroid disorders, obesity, endocrine cancer, growth problems, reproduction, infertility, and rare diseases, among others. 

The award is open to all credentialed journalists in print (both “hard copy” and electronic) or broadcast. Candidates can self-nominate or be nominated by someone else. Only one nomination is permitted for each journalist. Media outlets are limited to three entries. Submissions can include any work first published between December 1, 2018 and October 31, 2019. 

Weight will be given to entries that contribute to the public understanding of endocrinology and demonstrate thorough research, accurate reporting, and originality. 

The honor consists of an award to be presented at a dinner reception in March at ENDO 2020, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting, in San Fransisco, Calif. The award recipient also will receive complimentary travel and hotel accommodations to attend the annual meeting. 

To apply, please complete the nomination form and submit a digital copy of the article/work, whether published or taped. More information can be found at endocrine.org/news-and-advocacy/news-room/journalism-award. Submissions also can be emailed to media@endocrine.org

Submissions must be received by Friday, December 6, 2019.
