TORONTO, Nov. 22 - Did you work on a health care story in 2010 that you're especially proud of? Reporters, editors and producers are encouraged to enter their best work in the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario's (RNAO) 13th Annual Awards for Excellence in Health-Care Reporting.
Each year, RNAO receives entries from media outlets across the province. Last year's judges reviewed entries from CBC Radio, the Hamilton Spectator, Global Television and Today's Parent magazine.
Stories will be judged on content, writing, analysis, creativity and human interest/community impact. Please select an exceptional feature, news story, or radio/television broadcast that you feel should be recognized for its comprehensive treatment of nursing or health-care issues. You can also nominate a colleague for the award.
Entries must have been published in Ontario newspapers, or magazines, or broadcast on radio or television during the 2010 calendar year. Winners will receive their awards in April at the President's Banquet held during RNAO's annual general meeting.
