  • Health care is a uniquely challenging consumer experience: it can be complex and expensive but also vital and deeply personal. It’s no wonder that consumers are looking to technology to help simplify their health care choices—and businesses are increasingly meeting them with solutions.

NIHCM Foundation Health Care Journalism Awards

Who is a contributor?

Anyone who should be credited for contributions to the entry should be listed as a contributor. It is common for the entrant to be the only contributor.

The entrant is listed as a contributor to the entry by default. In some cases an entrant may choose not to be a contributor; for example, a print editor may list herself as the entrant as an alternative to choosing a lead author, but she may prefer not to be included in finalist credits. If the entrant should NOT be credited as a contributor to the entry, you will need to check the box next to "Entrant should not be credited as a contributor to the entry" at the bottom of the Entrant Information form (step 2).

You can list up to twenty contributors in the entry form. Once you complete a set of contributor contact fields, click save and then "Add a Contributor." If you need to include more than twenty contributors, please contact NIHCM.

How will NIHCM use the contributor information?

Contributors to an entry will be contacted if the entry is chosen as a finalist. They will also be acknowledged in the finalist list and invited to our awards dinner.

We understand that in some circumstances it is difficult or inappropriate to share contact information for some contributors. If that is the case, please select "In care of entrant" above the address fields in the Contributor(s) step. When this box is selected, the entrant assumes responsibility for forwarding NIHCM's announcements and invitations to the contributor.
