Have you Made a Difference to People With Epilepsy Through Journalism? - Final Call for Entries to the 2012 Excellence in Epilepsy Journalism Award

SLOUGH, England, November 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The International Bureau for Epilepsy and biopharmaceutical company UCB today issued a final call for entries to the 2012 Excellence in Epilepsy Journalism Award.  New entries will be accepted until the final deadline, Friday 30th November.  To qualify, articles and broadcasts on epilepsy must be published between 30th October 2011 and 30th November 2012.

"The award, now in its fourth year, aims to raise awareness about epilepsy across the globe by recognising journalists who have excelled in reporting on this often misunderstood condition.  By encouraging informative, original and responsible journalism, the award hopes to raise awareness and decrease stigma for the estimated 50 million people around the world living with epilepsy,"[1] said Mike Glynn, President of the IBE.

 

"Today, many people with epilepsy continue to face prejudice and ignorance.  Thought-provoking, responsible and accurate journalism is important and the Excellence in Epilepsy Award is a way of recognising journalists who produce compelling stories which help everyone to understand the condition," commented Lode Dewulf, Vice President, Patient Affairs, UCB.

The award is open to all journalists, across four categories - print, online, broadcast TV and broadcast radio, with one winner to be selected from each group. Entries can either be entered by the author or via nomination by a third party.  An independent panel of media experts and people with experience of epilepsy will judge submitted entries against set criteria to select winning entries. The panel includes:

  • Mr Robert Cole, Epilepsy Association of South Australia and the Northern Territory, Australia
  • Dr Carlos Acevedo, Secretary General of the International Bureau for Epilepsy and Editor, International Epilepsy News, Chile
  • Mr Joachim Mueller-Jung, Editor and Journalist, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Germany
  • Mr David Josephs, Epilepsy Advocate, UK
  • Dr Mark Porter, GP & Medical Correspondent for The Times, UK
  • Mr Randolph Siegel, President, Local Digital Strategy, Advance Publications, USA
  • Mr Mike Glynn, President, IBE, Ireland

"I am pleased to once again be part of the panel judging the Excellence in Epilepsy Journalism Award," said Dr Mark Porter, "It's important that informative and responsible reporting is encouraged to support both awareness and understanding of epilepsy. Over the last three years I have been impressed by the calibre of entries and look forward to reviewing the 2012 entries."
