Could you be Student Radiographer of the Year?
HEI course leaders are being asked to nominate those students they believe should be recognised at the profession's most prestigious awards ceremony.
The aim is to honour two undergraduate students – one diagnostic and one therapeutic – who have not only excelled academically and clinically, but have also made an outstanding contribution to student life and/or the university.
The winners will be invited to the 2013 Radiography Awards at the House of Commons in November and will each receive £250, a Fujifilm digital camera and an award certificate.

University of the West of England student, David Evans, won last year's award for UK Therapeutic Student Radiographer of the Year and was also the winner of the Work the World competition in 2011. He is now working towards his PhD.
Scooping the title of Diagnostic Student Radiographer of the Year was Paul Hayller who studied at Canterbury Christ Church. Said Paul: “I always enjoyed my time during training and always tried to do a little bit extra and go that extra mile for both the patients, my fellow students and for me to develop my personal skills that little bit more."
The 2013 Radiography Awards are kindly sponsored by Fujifilm.
Please note: Only representatives of each HEI can nominate. The nomination form can only be completed once so you will need to prepare your answers to all of the nomination questions in advance, preferably saved on a text document.
