2018 AMWA Early Career Award

The Australasian Medical Writers Association (AMWA) supports the professional development of writers and editors who publish health and medical articles in the mainstream press, electronic media and publications for health professionals.

To help aspiring writers enter the field of medical writing AMWA is launching the annual Early-Career Award.

The Award will assist in the transition from tertiary education or other areas of employment into full-time medical writing. Individuals with less than two years experience in medical writing are encouraged to apply.

Applicants for the Award will be assessed on a piece of writing of approximately 1000 words.

Submissions should focus on a topic that is strongly related to medicine and/or health.

Previously published pieces may be submitted.

Presented by an impressive expert line-up we’ll be covering vaccine development, approval and safety processes, vaccine implementation, strategies to address vaccine hesitancy, diagnostic testing post-vaccine as well as vaccine access.
