Up to five entrants will be notified in writing 60 days after the close of the contest and will receive $500 when accepted for publication in Medical Economics and/or on www.medicaleconomics.com (which is a part of the modernmedicine.com network). The editorial staff will judge, determine, and notify contest winners.
Some of the topics could include:
Solutions to falling revenue or innovating a workflow to save time, money, and/or see more patients

Call for Nominations: Society for Personality and Social Psychology Media Prize
Deadline: May 15, 2014
The Media Prize will recognize a person, normally outside the SPSP community, providing the best popular media piece or collection of pieces in the 2013 calendar year that conveys the contributions of personality or social psychology to the general public.
The intention is to have a broad and flexible definition of "piece”. This is the reason that "paper," article", or "publication" is not used in the Prize description. In addition to a written published piece, column, etc., a ‘piece’ can also be a radio series, regular TV segments, and blog posts, etc. Given the diversity of media today, it is hard to have a single work cover everything. Much more work is now being done to publicize our science in various media providing enormous amounts of information about our field to the general public.
One award may be given, but may have several contributors. The Panel is not obligated to award this prize annually.
The Media Prize is not to be confused with the Media Achievement Award. The Media Prize is for a set of work or single pieces in a given year. The Media Achievement Award reflects a long-term record of contributions over time.
Individuals may self-nominate or be nominated by others.
The Award Nomination Panel also reserves the right to nominate potential recipients for this award.
Nominations can be very brief. Please email the Panel with the name of the nominee along with a few URL links or other electronic pointers to their work, and a few sentences about why you think they might be good candidates for recognition by SPSP.
Submit the nomination information electronically to MediaPrizeSPSP@gmail.com
Designate that the nomination is for the 2014 Media Prize.
The submission deadline is May 15, 2014.
The recipient will receive a $500 honorarium, a plaque, registration compensation, primary mode of travel coverage pluse one $75 supplement to cover travel incidentals, and Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights of the convention at a SPSP designated hotel.
Recipients may decline the honorarium, if accepting it would present a professional conflict of interest or is against their employer's policy.
This 2014 Prize will be presented at the annual Society for Personality and Social Psychology conference, which will take place in Long Beach, California, February 26-28, 2015.
Questions can be directed to the Chair at MediaPrizeSPSP@gmail.com
Call for Nominations: Society for Personality and Social Psychology Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize
Deadline: June 1, 2014
The Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize recognizes an article or book chapter judged to provide the most innovative theoretical contribution to social/personality psychology within a given year. In October 2013, the Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology and the Society for Personality and Social Psychology were pleased to announce that henceforth the Society's annual Theoretical Innovation Prize will be known as the Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize. Dan Wegner, who passed away in 2013, was recognized with the field's most prestigious awards for his highly original scholarship and novel theoretical perspective. The dedication of this award to the memory of Dan Wegner is made possible by a generous donation from Worth Publishers.
Any kind of innovative theoretical contribution can be considered for the prize, including presentations of new theories, new theory-based integrations of disparate areas of inquiry, and significant extensions of existing theories to new areas of inquiry. Theoretical contributions are eligible for the prize regardless of the format of their presentation, whether in stand-along theoretical papers, within conceptually based literature reviews, or in some other written format that highlights conceptual innovation.
The prize recognizes theoretical articles that are especially likely to generate the discovery of new hypotheses, new phenomena, or new ways of thinking about the discipline of social/personality psychology. Theoretical contributions may be judged innovative and generative even before they have accumulated substantial empirical support. Therefore, an article may be judged worthy for the prize even if it runs the risk of empirical invalidation in the future. The emphasis of the prize is on a contribution's conceptual innovation and potential to motivate new research and further conceptual investigation, rather than on its current level of empirical support.
Eligible articles are those published as papers in peer-reviewed journals or as book chapters during the previous calendar year. Books and unpublished manuscripts are not eligible.
Eligible articles may be nominated by their authors or by other members of SPSP. The Nomination Panel may also consider additional eligible papers even if not nominated by their authors or other individuals.
The Award Nomination Panel has the option of not awarding a prize annually.
Eligible articles are those published as papers in peer-reviewed journals or as book chapters during calendar year 2013.
Books, unpublished and ‘in press’ manuscripts are not eligible. ‘Published in 2013’ means, as rightly interpreted, that it appears in print in 2013.
Eligible articles or chapters may be nominated by their authors or by other members of SPSP. The Panel may also consider additional eligible papers even if not nominated by their authors or other individuals.
To nominate an article or chapter for consideration, individuals should send the following to TheoreticalPrize@gmail.com
An E-file in PDF or Microsoft Word format of the nominated piece
An E-file of a brief (e.g., one paragraph) nominating letter describing how the nominated article excels on the prize criteria
If the nominated piece is a chapter and does not contain an abstract, a 150 word abstract (electronic format) should also be sent.
Please designate that the nomination is for the Theoretical Innovation Prize.
The submission deadline is June 1, 2014.
The 2014 Theoretical Innovation Prize recipient will receive an award of $700.
This Prize will be presented at the annual Society for Personality and Social Psychology conference, which will take place in Long Beach, California, February 26-28, 2015.
Questions should be directed to the Chair at TheoreticalPrize@gmail.com
The Panel has the option of not awarding a prize annually.
