Europe For Patients : Award Ceremony

29 October 2009

How to reward quality journalism that helps citizens to understand health issues

The purpose of this contract was to organise an award ceremony for a competition aimed at journalists as part of the action "Europe for Patients". This prize aims to reward quality journalism that helps citizens to understand health issues.


Cecoforma Events & Communication organised the EU Health Journalism Prize award ceremony, which was awarded to three journalists who wrote on topics related to the “Europe for Patients” campaign. More than 300 journalists from all EU countries proposed 468 articles. One journalist per member state was shortlisted for the final. The 27 finalists were invited to Brussels for a seminar on the initiatives of the campaign "Europe for patients" and a prize ceremony at the Théâtre du Vaudeville, under the aegis of Commissioner Vassiliou. Cecoforma Events & Communication arranged a full day visit for those selected journalists to DG SANCO, where they had access to the press room and had a chance to meet some of the DG’s members. The day was concluded with the award ceremony accompanied by a walking dinner and a live concert by jazz band Zongora.
