The Dr Ross Ingram Memorial Prize commemorates the life and work of Dr Ross Ingram, an Indigenous general practitioner who died in 2003, aged 36, of cardiovascular disease. The prize is awarded for an outstanding essay or artwork on Indigenous health by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person. The competition is open to any Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person who is working, researching or training in a health-related field. Entries should present original and positive ideas aimed at promoting health gains and health equity for Australia's Indigenous peoples.
$2000 is awarded in each category (essay and artwork), and winning entries are published in the Medical Journal of Australia (MJA). Other entries of high merit may also be published. A panel, including external experts and MJA editorial staff, will judge finalist entries, and judges will be blinded to the identities of the authors.
Entries usually close in mid May.
