‘Dear 16-Year-Old Me’ Wins SCPN Communications Prize


Feb 16

We are delighted to announce that the inaugural winner of the SCPN Online Communications Prize is ‘Dear 16-Year-Old Me’ by the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund.

Inspired by communications like the YouTube videos by Dr Mike Evans – 23 1/2 hours or ‘What’s the Best Diet? Healthy Eating’ – we wanted to find and showcase powerful videos about lifestyle behaviours which have an impact on cancer risk.

Throughout the second half of 2015, we looked for your nominations for a short video (less than 10 mins) related to cancer prevention (tobacco, sun awareness, diet, physical activity, weight, screening etc.) – including self nominations by organisations or individuals, and they came flooding in.

Our final four short-listed entries were presented by Professor Linda Bauld at our conference on World Cancer Day, 4th February 2016 and delegates were asked to judge the winner.
