The Canadian Institutes of Health Research is accepting entries for its 2011-2012 investigative journalism awards. The application deadline is October 5, 2011.
The CIHR Journalism Awards will support media stories that inform Canadians of evidence-based health-related research issues carried out by health researchers. The award is not meant to support health-related research carried out by the applicant. Recipients may undertake projects in print, broadcast and on-line media. Projects are expected to include a period of investigation and study that assembles the information needed for an in-depth news or feature article, a radio or TV piece, or a series of articles or pieces. Travel to interview sources is anticipated.
