John Wiley and Sons Audio-Visual Prize

In 1981, an audio-visual competition was introduced to the International Surgical Congress, with the objective of encouraging the production of educational films suitable for a consultant surgical audience. Within a few years, video format replaced cine film and the competition now attracts a large number of high quality entries, which are judged each year by the Scientific Committee.

There are two categories of award:- Entried produced "in-house" by a surgical team in association with their department of medical illustration.- Entries produced more "commercially" by a surgical team with external technical or financial assistance.The winner of each category receives a cash prize of £300.Commentaries must be in English and films must be no longer than 10 minutes in length. You can now submit entries on hard copy DVD or upload them online. Details of these procedures appear in the current Call For Abstracts booklet.Entries will be judged according to surgical interest, teaching value and technical merit and will be shown at the International Surgical Congress, where the winners will be announced during the Prize Giving Session. A list of equipment used for the production must accompany each entry, together with full names and qualifications of those most involved in the making of the film.

Closing date for entries will always be the same as the current abstract deadline.
