The Section of Medical Humanities is accepting submissions for two awards, one for writing and one for visual arts.
The Ninth Annual Writing Award is for creative works published in print or online between November 2014 and August 2015. Blog entries will only be eligible if reconfigured and submitted as an independently publishable piece of creative writing. Self-nominations and nominations of someone else’s writing are both welcome. Nominations are limited to two pieces per person.
The section is also soliciting submissions for its Third Annual Visual Arts Award. This is an opportunity for artists to show off their paintings, photography, sculpture, textiles, pottery, and other works. Submit a digital image or file of the visual art for consideration. Nominations are limited to 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. Email nominations to Tracy Napper (firstname.lastname@example.org) before Sept. 1, 2015. Submissions will be blinded before being sent to the judging panel.
The winning pieces will be announced at ACEP15 in Boston this October.
