Imaging & Therapy Practice student competition 2020

14 February, 2020
Imaging and Therapy Practice

Imaging & Therapy Practice journal will again be running its popular annual student competition, publishing a special edition in October, dedicated exclusively to the winning students’ work.

Each higher education institution in the UK 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 from those that have been submitted. Additionally, there are other prizes for highly commended articles and one article will be awarded best overall CPD.

There will be a cash prize for each winning author and an all-expenses paid invitation to a SCoR event to collect their awards.

A student’s supervisor or an academic member of staff is permitted to oversee the piece of work, which can be part of the programme’s coursework or something written especially for I&TP. However, the articles should not be co-authored with a tutor or member of staff, but purely the student’s own work.

Entrants must be members of the Society of Radiographers.

The final deadline date for submissions is 29 May 2020.

And remember, even if the students aren’t placed in the top five, the chances are that their articles will still be published in subsequent issues of I&TP. In fact, the standard of the articles in 2019 was so high that almost all submissions will be seen in regular editions of the journal this year.

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 – or 07494 975217.

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