ITP competition deadline fast approaching

Published: 27 April 2016 Ezine

If you have not entered an article for the Imaging & Therapy Practice annual student competition, there’s still time!

The final deadline date for submissions is 27 May 2016.

Each HEI has been invited to submit a piece of work produced by a radiography student or group of students who are in their second, third/final undergraduate year – 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 from the submissions.

There will be a cash prize for each winning author and an all-expenses paid invitation to the 2017 student conference to receive an award.

Additionally this year, a special prize, sponsored by interactive media specialist Axia, will be awarded for the most outstanding CPD Now Planned Pathways section that is supplied with an article.

A change to the rules this year means that HEIs are able to submit two articles per institution – therapy or diagnostic or one of each.

The work can be co-authored by the student’s supervisor or academic member of staff and can be part of the student’s coursework or something written especially for I&TP.

If you need any further information or advice, or you would like to discuss anything before you submit, please do not hesitate to email the editor Mel Armstrong – [email protected] or telephone 01795 542436.

There will be further news and updates about the competition over the coming months – so watch this space!
