Guiding ideas for the APHeN writing competition:

  • Submissions should first be submitted in a word document and not a PowerPoint. The shortlisted candidates would then prepare PowerPoint slides for physical presentations at the venue on the day of the event;
  • All ideas and content should be backed-up with reliable data;
  • Writing should be captivating to readers and the audience. It should be thoughtful and clearly structured;
  • Content should be data-centred;
  • Content should also be simple and interactive, displaying creativity in presentation, storytelling, and solutions;
  • Credit should be given when due, by citing or referencing your sources.
  • All submissions must be previously unpublished. A work that has previously appeared on a blog or website is considered previously published and is thus ineligible for our competition.
