Our awards are known as the Oscars of health and medical journalism, so it’s no wonder the 2020 MJA Awards are headline news.
The Daily Mail celebrated their writers’ wins with coverage of our “prestigious” awards on page 2.
Pulse were, quite rightly, delighted that Jaimie Kaffash was named Editor of the Year. GPOnline were banging their drum for Blogger of the Year, their news editor Nick Bostock. [If you’re not registed on these sites, scroll down to read the coverage in full]. And C+D even included a link to our virtual ceremony in their coverage of pharmacist Laura Buckley winning Blogger of the Year.
There was a huge buzz on social media, too. Our favourite post was a picture of Laura, who was ‘crowned’ with bedpans by nursing colleagues for her win. She said she was, “shocked to have won, given the fierce competition for the category”.
Thanks to Bristol-Myers Squibb and all our sponsors for supporting these awards and helping us celebrate excellence during these difficult days.
