UICC Members Awards

Due to ongoing uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and the disruption to travel and social gatherings into 2021, UICC has decided to call off the World Cancer Congress planned for March 2021 in Oman.

The format of the UICC Members Awards have been modified to reflect the cancellation of the World Cancer Congress. 

UICC strongly believes in continuing to celebrate members and creating opportunities to honour their work. Awards will still be given for two categories, Best CEO and Best Demonstration of the World Cancer Day Spirit. Official nominations will now close on the 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 called off. Submissions for nominations in these categories are therefore no longer being accepted.

Recognising outstanding achievements and innovative practices across UICC membership

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 Members 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 six categories below for the chance to be recognised at an Award Ceremony during the World Cancer Congress.

  1. CEO Award
  2. World Cancer Day Award
