John Henahan Writing Prize


Entrants to the John Henahan Prize are invited to write a 900-word essay on the topic of, “Why Should I publish?”

The competition is open to ESCRS members aged 40 years or under on 1 January 2016.

The essays will be judged by Thomas Kohnen, chairman ESCRS Publications Committee; Emanuel Rosen, chief medical editor EuroTimes; Jose Guell, former president ESCRS; Oliver Findl, chairman ESCRS Young Ophthalmologists Committee; Sean Henahan, editor EuroTimes; Paul McGinn, editor EuroTimes; and Robert Henahan, contributing editor EuroTimes.

The main criteria for consideration by the judges are the clinical content of the story and the writing style, including punctuation and grammar, which should reflect the high standard of material published in EuroTimes.

The winner will receive a travel bursary worth €1,000 to attend the XXXIV Congress of the ESCRS in Copenhagen, Denmark and a special trophy which will be presented at the Video Awards Session on Sunday 11 September 2016.

The prize is named in honour of John Henahan, who edited EuroTimes from 1996 to 2001.

Entry forms are available from Colin Kerr, executive editor, EuroTimes at:

Closing date for entries is Friday 27 May 2016.
