Morris Markowe Prize

Members who are interested in communicating to patients and the public about a psychiatric topic can enter the Morris Markowe Public Education Prize and win £1,000.

As well as written articles from newspapers, lay journals or online, this year for the first time we’re allowing you to put forward podcasts and other digital media, such as videos, of no more than 10 minutes in length.

The competition is open to members and trainees until 1 October and only one entry is allowed per person.

Entries will be judged by Professor Wendy Burn, the Chair of the Public Education Editorial Board (PEEB), patient and carer representatives, and key College staff who will assess the readability, originality and newsworthiness of each submission.

For information on how to submit an entry to this year’s prize and for the full submission guidelines, visit the College’s website. You will also be able to see winners from previous years.

The prize was established in 1989 from funds donated in the memory of the late Dr Morris Markowe, Honorary Fellow, and Registrar of the Royal College of Psychiatrists from 1972-78.
