The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) and the Canadian Foundation for Women’s Health (CFWH) are co-sponsoring a program of journalism awards for excellence in reporting on women’s health issues. The awards are open to print (including consumer magazines, newspapers and online news sites) and broadcast media published during 2011.
The SOGC/CFWH Journalism Awards for Excellence in Women’s Health Reporting recognizes outstanding reporting on women’s health issues appearing in consumer newspapers, magazines and broadcasts across Canada.
Winners in each media category receive a $1000 cash prize and will be honoured at the annual conference of SOGC in June. There will also be three Honourable Mentions per category. Submissions are due by March 5, 2012. General criteria and applications forms are here.
Last year’s Honourable Mentions include National Magazine Award-winning articles “The Human Egg Trade” by Alison Motluk (The Walrus) and “Guérir par les microbes” by Valérie Borde (L’actualité).
