£1,000 for 1,000 words

Write an original article on a psychiatric topic aimed at the general public and you could win £1,000.

That’s the prize on offer for the winning entry in this year’s Morris Markowe Public Education prize.

Your article should be around 1,000 words long, and be suitable for publication in a newspaper, lay journal or online.

Previous winners have covered a wide range of topics from Prince Harry’s revelations about his own mental health to the names we give to different drugs.

Last year’s winner was Dr Joanne Younge who wrote an article called ‘The Last Taboo – Let’s Talk about Sex and Dementia.’

The deadline for entry is 1 October 2020.
