Imaging & Therapy Practice student competition 2017
Imaging & Therapy Practice magaizine is again running the annual student competition and publishing a special edition in October, dedicated exclusively to the winning students’ work.
Each higher education institution (HEI) is invited to submit outstanding pieces of work produced by a pre-registration radiography student or group of students:
- An essay on a topic relevant to the profession
- A case study
- A critique of an aspect of practice
- Or another contribution entirely.
A panel of judges at the College of Radiographers will choose the five best.
There is a cash prize for each winning author and an all-expenses paid invitation to the 2018 student conference to receive an award.
A special prize, sponsored by interactive media specialist Axia, will be made for the most outstanding CPD Now Planned Pathways section that is supplied with an article.
Each HEI may submit up to four articles - radiotherapy or diagnostic, or a mix of both. The work can be overseen by the student’s supervisor or an academic member of staff and can be part of the student’s coursework or something written especially for I&TP.
The work should not be co-authored with a tutor or member of staff, but be the student’s own work.
The deadline for submissions is 26 May 2017.
Even if the students aren’t placed in the top five, it is likely their articles will be published in subsequent issues of I&TP.
"The standard of the articles in 2016 was so high," says editor Melanie Armstrong, "that almost all submissions will be seen in regular editions of the journal in 2017."
If you need any further information or advice, or you would like to discuss anything before you submit, please email Mel Armstrong or call 07494 975217.
