Make the most of your work as a student radiographer by entering the annual Insight Student Writing Competition - with cash prizes!
And we have extended the entry period for two weeks to ensure everyone has the opportunity to enter. The new deadline is 9am on Monday 26 September 2022.
Insight is the official CPD publication of the Society and College of Radiographers and you can view copies of previous editions here. We aim to provide an opportunity for radiographers to write about professional and educational subjects that have a direct bearing on their clinical role, sharing information, ideas and CPD opportunities relevant to the science and practice of diagnostic radiography and therapeutic radiography.
Entries can be submitted by a student or recently qualified radiographer, or on their behalf by Higher Education Institutions. The work must have been completed while a pre-registration radiography student.
The five winning authors will see their work featured in a special digital edition of Insight magazine in December. They will also receive cash prizes, with a first prize of £250, second prize of £150, third prize of £100, fourth prize of £75, and fifth prize of £50.
Staff from HEIs may submit up to four papers on behalf of their students and act as the corresponding author.
The entry period opens on 4 July and you need to email your articles to [email protected] by 9am on Monday 26 September 2022.
All submissions will be reviewed by the Insight Editorial Board and the highest scoring papers published in December. Some revisions to papers may be requested prior to publication. The judges' decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
Tell us your name, year, course and higher education institution, and include your mobile phone number in case we need to contact you quickly regarding your entry.
We are keeping the submission rules as straightforward as possible. Simply send us a piece of written work that was submitted as part of your radiography course, improved and developed as you think necessary, or you can write a completely new article. All submissions must follow these basic guidelines:
