The Royal College of Psychiatrists invites entries for the Morris Markowe public engagement prize. The prize was established in 1989 from funds donated in the memory of the late Dr Morris Markowe, Honorary Fellow, and Registrar of the Royal College of Psychiatrists from 1972-78.

This prize recognises an article on a psychiatric topic aimed at the general public that is either suitable for publication, has been published in the last year, or has been commissioned by the Public Education Committee for publication. The article should be published, or suitable for publication, in a national or local newspaper, lay journal or on the internet.

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.

Entries will be judged on their readability, originality and newsworthiness from the viewpoint of the general public or lay reader, by designated members of the College’s Public Education Committee.

The prize is worth £1,000.

Deadline is 1 October.

Applications are submitted electronically.
