ASTRO Wins Three 2009 Communicator Awards

June 26, 2009 - The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has been honored with three Communicator Awards for its work on the Radiation Therapy for Cancer brochure, ASTROnews and the 2008 Annual Report. All three ASTRO publications were recognized with Awards of Excellence and awarded the Gold Communicator Award, which is the highest honor that the Communicator Awards bestows.

The Communicator Awards is an annual competition honoring the best in advertising, corporate communications, public relations and identity work for print, video, interactive and audio. More than 7,000 entries were submitted this year from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms. The awards are judged and overseen by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA).

"Congratulations to the dedicated volunteers on ASTRO's Communications Committee and ASTROnews Editorial Board as well as the entire Communications Department for this well-deserved honor," Laura Thevenot, ASTRO CEO, said. "These individuals work hard year-round to produce these award winning publications for ASTRO members and the patients they treat and it further validates their hard work when a prestigious organization like the Communicator Awards recognizes them."

Radiation Therapy for Cancer is ASTRO's most well-read patient resource. It is a 24-page booklet helping patients and their families understand how radiation therapy works as they consider their treatment options. A free copy can be downloaded from www.rtanswers.org.
