Have you submitted your story for the Dental Journalism Awards?

22 October 2018

Australian journalists are reminded that applications for the Australian Dental Association (ADA) Excellence in Dental Journalism 2018 Awards are closing soon.

Any journalist who has had a story about dentistry and oral health published in Australia through public print, television or radio in the two years prior to 31 December 2018 is eligible to apply. Two $5,000 awards will be made – one for electronic media and one for print media.

As Australia’s peak dental organisation, the ADA is committed to promoting good oral health and recognises’ the important role the media can play in raising awareness of oral health issues stated ADA President Dr Hugo Sachs.

“When it comes to oral health promotion and education, this year’s highlight so far is the ADA and Australian Health Policy Collaboration’s launch of Australia’s Oral Health Tracker. Australia is the first country in the world that has as tracker outlining a set of measurable oral health targets for children, young people and adults. There has also been considerable attention directed to poor dental rebates under private health insurance policies, so I am confident there will be a number of eligible recipients.”

Nominations close on 31 December 2018.

Award winners will be announced at the 38th Australian Dental Congress in Adelaide in May 2019.
