Make the most of your work as a student radiographer by entering the annual Insight Student Writing Competition - with cash prizes!
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, and the author must be a current member of the SoR.
The five winning authors will see their work featured in a special 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 is now open and you need to email your articles to [email protected] by 9am on 1 September 2023.
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 your own 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. It could also be a poster or a piece of patient information. All submissions must follow these basic guidelines:
If you have any queries about the above points, please email the editor at [email protected].
We look forward to receiving your entries!
