The annual MJA Awards recognise and reward outstanding examples of health and medical journalism. Each year we review awards categories to ensure they reflect both the diversity of our membership and the media in which we work.
These include awards for news and features in media for both a general and a specialist audience, as well as broadcast and digital prizes. Every year we also highlight subject which is particularly challenging to cover, or, we believe, warrants greater recognition
Occasionally we recognise an exceptional contribution to communicating health and medicine with a lifetime achievement award.
In 2018 the MJA introduced a new award for healthcare communications agencies and in-house teams which recognises excellence in producing media materials journalists want. This award is supported the Healthcare Communications Association.
