The Lung Cancer Journalism Awards present a unique opportunity for journalists to demonstrate their expertise and knowledge of lung cancer

September 16, 2008

What are the Lung Cancer Journalism Awards?

The Lung Cancer Journalism Awards was first launched by the Global Lung Cancer Coalition (GLCC) in May 2006 to recognise excellence in lung cancer reporting.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in both men and women, with more than 1.2 million new cases of lung and bronchial cancer worldwide every year.1 Sufferers of lung cancer are often stigmatised for their disease which is seen as a 'smoker's' disease, whereas in fact, 20 percent of those with lung cancer have never smoked.2

The Lung Cancer Journalism Awards present a unique opportunity for journalists to demonstrate their expertise and knowledge of lung cancer through accurate and thought-provoking reporting.

The Global Lung Cancer Coalition (GLCC)

The Global Lung Cancer Coalition was set up in 2001 as an international group of patient organisations dedicated to supporting the needs of lung cancer patients. Through acting as the international voice of lung cancer patients we are committed to improving disease outcomes, changing public perceptions of the disease and placing lung cancer on the global healthcare agenda.

As a member of the Global Lung Cancer Coalition, the Canadian Lung Association urges journalists to enter this award competition. By doing so, they can help to raise global awareness of the leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide.
