The Royal College of Psychiatrists invites entries for the Morris Markowe public engagement prize.

This annual prize recognises an article, podcast or other digital media created for the wider public on a psychiatric topic aimed at the general public that is suitable for publication.

Articles can be written for national or local newspapers, or already published (between May 2020 and April 2021) and must be no more than 800 words in length. Podcasts or other digital media can be around 10 minutes in duration.

All members of the college, including trainees, may submit entries. Joint entries are accepted, provided one of the authors is a member of the college or a trainee.

The prize is worth £1,000.

Entries will be judged on their readability, originality and newsworthiness from the viewpoint of the general public or lay reader, by Professor Wendy Burn, Chair of the Public Engagement Editorial Board, patient and carer representatives and key College staff.

Entries for the prize close on 1 October 2021, so all submissions should be entered before midnight on 30 September 2021.

 

You can find previously award articles and media on the Royal College of Psychiatrists website.
