TORONTO, Feb. 4 /CNW/ - The deadline to enter the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario's (RNAO) annual Awards for Excellence in Health-Care Reporting is Friday, Feb. 12 at 4:30 p.m.

Reporters, editors and producers are encouraged to submit their best work. Journalists can also nominate colleagues for an award. Entries must have been published in Ontario newspapers or magazines, or broadcast on radio or television during the 2009 calendar year. Winners will receive their awards in April at the President's Banquet held during RNAO's annual general meeting.

Stories will be judged on content, writing, analysis, creativity and human interest/community impact. Please select an exceptional feature, news story, or radio/television broadcast that you feel should be recognized for its comprehensive treatment of nursing or health-care issues.
