The Section of Medical Humanities is soliciting submissions for its eighth annual Writing Award. Eligible pieces are creative works published in print or online between November 2013 and August 2014. Blog entries are only eligible if reconfigured and submitted as an independently publishable piece of creative writing. Self-nominations or nominations of someone else’s writing are both welcome. Limit two pieces per person.
The Section of Medical Humanities is also soliciting submissions for its second annual Visual Arts Award. This is an opportunity for artists to show off their paintings, photography, etc. Submit a digital image or file of the visual art (photograph, sculpture, textile, pottery, painting, etc.). Limit two pieces per person.
Submissions for both awards are accepted from any member of ACEP. Submissions will be voted on by the members of the Section of Medical Humanities.
Nominations should be e-mailed to Tracy Napper (firstname.lastname@example.org) before September 1, 2014. Submissions will be blinded before being sent to the judging panel.
The winning pieces will be announced at ACEP14 in Chicago.
