From an ACEP press release that the award deadline has been extended:
The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) recognizes significant contributions made by members of the news media to cover emergency medicine issues and to educate the public about them.
ACEP invites submissions on key issues in emergency medicine. Categories: television (national), television (local), television (cable), newspaper, radio, Internet-based news sites and magazine.
Eligibility: Nominations must be for news stories published or aired within the 2010 calendar year (January 1 – December 31, 2010). The Awards of Excellence program is open to all credentialed journalists. Candidates can self-nominate or be nominated by someone else.
Entries must be received by January 22, 2011.
Award winners will be notified by April 15, 2011.
There are no entry fees.
Awards will be presented to print and broadcast news stories that provide:
· Outstanding coverage of an emergency medicine issue.
· In-depth analysis or investigation that brings clarity to a key emergency medicine issue and educates the public.
· Significant impact that motivates positive change or breaks a new story that generates widespread coverage.
Awards: Generally, only one winner will be announced in each category. Winners will receive an award and recognition during ACEP’s annual Leadership & Advocacy Conference in Washington, DC, May 22-25, 2011. Winners will be publicized through a press release, and special letters of congratulation will be mailed to each recipient’s organization.
