Due to the World Cancer Congress in March 2021 no longer taking place, the format of the UICC Members Awards have been modified to reflect this change.
UICC strongly believes in continuing to celebrate members and creating opportunities to honour their work. Two award categories: Best CEO and Best Demonstration of the World Cancer Day Spirit will continue with official nominations now closing on 31st August 2020.
The two award winners will be recognised as part of a special edition of the Virtual Dialogues taking place in November. For more information, click here.
Please note that award categories directly related to the World Cancer Congress, including Best Advocacy with Impact, Best Public-Private Initiative, Best Patient Group Pavilion Case Study, Best Scientific Abstract and Best Global Village Stand have been postponed with submissions for nominations in these categories no longer being accepted
In order to achieve our collective goals for global cancer control, we need to learn from the remarkable leaders, patients, campaigners, advocates and fundraisers from across our community of members.
The UICC Awards aim to identify and celebrate the exceptional contributions made by UICC members and inspire the cancer control community through their efforts.
Open to UICC members only, nominations are usually sought on Congress years in any of the seven categories below for the chance to be recognised at an Award Ceremony during the World Cancer Congress.
The next Award Ceremony will take virtually through a Special Edition Virtual Dialogue in November (date to be confirmed).
