Journalism award alert

If you've written about cancer-related issues in the last few years, may we draw your attention to a new award? The Luminous Award, sponsored by Lilly Oncology, will "recognize and reward journalism that enlightens audiences by providing responsible, accurate and timely information on advances in cancer prevention and treatment." The award is open to all journalists -- freelancers included -- and there's a very generous timeline of when the articles had to appear in print (between September 1, 2001 and August 30, 2006).

The winner will receive a seven-day trip to Boston, New York, London, Sydney, or Paris for two, where he or she can meet with a top oncologist/cancer researcher and learn more about what s/he's working on. There are also runner-up prizes.

Good luck!
